TRIART 2013 September 15

Date: September 15, 2013

Place: Sunport Takamatsu in Japan

We will perform the TRIART also this year!

The TRIART in 2013 will provide a perspective to express “now” of all athletes for visitors. TRIART LIVE will show real-time status of all 500 participants such as preparation, start, swim, bike, run, goal and relax, in the visualization. The visualization gives us the dynamic flow of the time in the game of triathlon.

Plus, we will show TRIART LOG also this year. After the game, all athletes can receive a picture roll based log that is visualizing individual events happened around the participant during the game. For example, the log contains automatic tweets generated through the system instead of the athlete, cheers from friends and family, weather info and news info. And the athletes can take it home with one as memory.

The time stamp of all athletes, with information tag, are recorded automatically at each gate in the game. By using this data, the TRIART LIVE provides a real-time collective story to see all status of participants, and the TRIART LOG shows individual stories while they are.

TRIART is an experimental art project to realize new expression by combining Triathlon and Art. This TRIART was conducted in Sunport Takamatsu Triathlon 2012. (http://triart.howeb.org/)

In this project, we realized both TRIART LOG and TRIART INSTALLATION. The TRIART LOG expresses individual stories of participants, by printed picture roll expressing a story while they were in the game. On the other hand, the TRIART INSTALLATION expresses a collective art to express a moment when the first athlete reached to the goal. In this installation, it expresses all positions as if a gathering photograph from above.
