The body of work that TSUDA Michiko is creating includes installations composed of arranged mirrors, frames and video equipment, as well as pieces created in collaboration with various performers. For Aichi Triennale, the works were exhibited in tatami rooms and on the earthen floor of the Ito Residence that was built in the Edo era on Shikemichi. You would have gone there to see them by then. (2019) is a video installation with the placement of a mirror, an empty frame, and a screen in the Ito Residence. Displayed on the screen is combination of real-time video captured by a camera installed in the garden and prerecorded footage of a performer. She encouraged the viewer to move freely throughout the space, which was created using both real and virtual images, where the viewer could both see and be seen, and the boundaries blurred between viewer and performer.
