New entertainment experiences through the fusion of technology and art. As a special sponsor of the 'ANDYWARHOLKYOTO' exhibit at Kyocera Museum of Art, Kyoto, Sony presents a new entertainment experience by combining Sony’s technology with the major exhibition of AndyWarhol's work.
At the "Sony Park Exhibition KYOTO" held in Kyoto during the 'ANDYWARHOLKYOTO' exhibit, Warhol’s personally owned Walkman was displayed for the first time in Japan. This video, featuring an exclusive interview with Patrick Moore, Director of The AndyWarhol Museum, tells the untold episodes of Warhol's life.
[Technical cooperation by Sony] ● Experience of Interactive Media Art with Fragment Shadow The Fragment Shadow: interactive media art of shadow, created by Shunichi Kasahara, researcher at Sony Computer Science Laboratories, Inc, has collaborated with AndyWarhol's “Silver Clouds”, known as the art that one can touch. For the first time in AndyWarhol exhibitions, the technology of Fragment Shadow’s multi-projection, combined with “Silver Clouds”, brings experience beyond time and space.
● Audio Guide systems that adjust to user behavior through the use of AI The Audio Guide system uses a location-based system that utilizes advanced AI-based positioning technology developed by Sony's R&D Center. Even in situations where exhibits are placed close together, the relevant content of the exhibit that is located closest to the user, based on the user's movement path within the venue, allowing the user to listen to the guide smoothly.
