Lasermice workshop

A two-part remote workshop for children. The event was held in Tokyo under the declaration of emergency for coronavirus. It was organised by a certified NPO corporation PIECES, who is represented by Ibuki Ozawa, a child psychiatrist. In the first part, participating families are connected via Zoom, all they got robots in advance. They will make their original furs, give their names, think about their personalities, and present them. Lasermice became the alter ego of them, are sent back. And in the second part, the children watch a video streaming that robots return to the flock. They watched the live performance as if they were watching their kids' school play.

Initially, Lasermice was created as a swarm, and individuals were not intentionally recognized beyond numbers for convenience. However, through the workshops they got names and characters. When they play a rhythm in a group, I inevitably remind kids from robots, which makes double-layered experience.
