Meta Crafts

Seiya Kobayashi

A series of self-referencing crafts that reveal the nature of the medium.


I love the idea of Douglas Hofstadter's “Self-reference”, a term used to indicate something that refers to itself. ex) This sentence written in six words.
And I believe that this technique is a good way to shed light on the essence of medium and human cognition(and humor), because it reminds me McLuhan's saying “Medium is the message”.
This is a first collection of self-referencing crafts that I have been creating using new technologies.
