Uber Existence

Shin Hanagata (Japan)
Uber Existence is an “existence agency” that provides service of “being there”. When users go to the official website, they see people lined up as products. Then, a user can choose an “actor” to represent him/her, according to where to go and what kind of body to have. The user can then connect with the “actor” through the app and actually “be” there. The catchphrase is: “Let's go outside while staying home.”

Artist Biography

Born in Tokyo in 1995. After graduating from Keio University SFC, he enrolled in the Master of Fine Art in Information Design at Tama Art University. Based on his interest in the boundary between self and other, human and non-human, which is wavering in the technologically accelerated late capitalist society, he develops, practices, and provides devices for the body that is becoming less "I" and less "human".
