Tetsuro Fukuhara is space dance artist, writer, photographer, and director of Tokyo Space Dance. I created SPACE DANCE with the concept of “Dance & Design". In 2006 in Tokyo, I and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency(JAXA) published “SPACE DANCE – Someday in the Universe" with the architect, designer, media art curator, robot developer, and brain scientist. In 2018, my book “VISION of BODY” was published and I held a memorial lecture "APAROS - AI Robot as My Alter Ego" at Copernicus Science Center in Warsaw. Currently, I am running "Space Museum Online" and starting to look a producer, an investor, and other collaborative working partners to open SPACE MUSEUM. If you are interested in my plan, please contact me. Tetsuro Fukuhara email; jv4t-fkhr@asahi-net.or.jp http://sdee-museum.com/

Ability of “Looking Objectively”/ 「客体視」という能力


  人間は、近く、パキケトゥスやアンプロケトゥスたちと 「同じ種類の冒険」をはじめる。

  Our humans, in a short time, will start to do “Same kind of Adventures” like Pakicetus and Ambulocetus.


人間は、「坐るための椅子」をデザインすることで、 サルとは違う人間としての特有の進化を決定づけ、新しい文化を誕生させた。私の「物語」では、魚・両生類・四足動物・鳥・サル・人間のそれぞれにおいて、それぞれの姿勢に応じた文化が存在するという、「姿勢は文化創造の母胎である」という「仮説」を採用している。つまり、文化とは人間の独占物ではない。そのために「姿勢」が重要なキーワードになっている。

Humans could get a very characteristic evolution as human beings different from the monkey realized by a design of “Chair for the Sitting”. Then, they could develop a new culture. In my story I adopted a hypothesis that “Posture is a Womb for Creating Culture”. In this hypothesis each fish, amphibian, quadruped animal, bird, monkey, human have each cultures depend on each postures. So, the culture is not a monopoly of humans. In this meaning “Posture” is one of very important keywords in my story.



Humans could perfect the bipedalism well, so they could notice a special value of the sitting. And for supporting this behavior such a sitting humans could start to create “Chair for the Sitting”. Its awareness and its creation are estimated highly as “Design’s Behavior that developed Human’s Characteristic Evolution”. Indeed, not only humans but also monkey could sit on the rock, on the grass, on the tree, and on other every location. However, it is only human beings that bother to make the man-made article “Chair” and only human sit on it.



What is the difference between when humans sit on an artificial object named “Chair” and on other natural objects? Of course it is not only the theme about the comfortable sitting. Frankly speaking, humans could get an ability of “Looking Objectively”. In short, through the sitting on “Chair”, they could expand the body to the world, and at its point they could meet “Nature” again. Then, humans could start to look “Nature” and “Earth” including the body objectively.



This ability of “Looking Objectively” generated the definite difference between our humans and the monkey and other animals at my “A Story constituted on One Hundred Hypotheses”. In the end, by this ability, only humans could start to look our existence on the ground with a “View from Outside”. Its first fruits of this view were an invention of “God” and an occurrence of “Religion”


  Humans, through this ability of “Looking Objectively” could start to live into the universe as a spirit at the same time humans existed on the earth, and humans start to look same person who lived on the earth. Humans has been getting a new “Mind” different from the monkey and other animals.


脳科学者・入来篤史(理化学研究所脳科学総合研究センター)[注2] [参2]は、「心」の発生について次のような実にユニークな仮説を立てている。

Atsushi Iriki [C-27] [R-7], a brain scientist at Brain Science Institute of Physical and Chemical Research Center in Tokyo, suggested a very unique hypothesis about the occurrence of “Mind” like follows;

「様相が一変したのは、ヒトの祖先が、外界の事物を手に持ち、それを身体の延長として動かそうと、道具の使用をはじめたときでした。このとき、道具が身体の一部となると同時に、身体は道具と同様の事物として客体化されて、脳内に表象されるようになります。自己の身体が客体化されて分離されると、それを動かす脳神経系の機能の内に独立した地位を占める主体を想定せざるを得なくなります。その仮想的な主体につけられた名称が、意思を持ち感情を抱く座である心というものではないでしょうか。」(『脳研究の最前線』講談社 2007 172ページ)

“When the ancestor of humans started to hand the outward object to move it as an extension of their body, and when they could use it as a tool, something happened and it underwent a radical change. In that time, the body also changed to be an outward object at the same time a tool changed to be one part of the body. Then, the body was symbolized in the brain as a new organization. So, like that, when the body was separated as the object, we should imagine a new core as the independent position to move the body into the cranial nerve of the brain. I foresee that the name of its virtual core will be a “Mind” as a space with a will and with a feeling.”(“Origin of Intelligence, Hand and Brain Mechanism to Create the Future”(Riken Brain Science Institute. Kodansha 2007 at page 172.)


I think his hypothesis is a great and wonderful discussion. In short, he said that our brain didn’t need to develop a brain’s ability and didn’t need to get the human’s “Mind” to move the body as the subject, but our brain needed it when the humans started to move the body as the object. His position is “the humans have not survived simply in accordance with changes in the environment, but the humans are in the process of new evolution to further develop brain function and mind by creating an artificial environment by using tools and looking the artificial environment itself as the object”, if his position is proved as right it is expected to form a new evolution theory which turns into Darwin’s theory of evolution.



Humans who has come to sit on the artificial object named “Chair” could belong to the outside of the earth with a different “Mind” from other animals at the same time they belong to the earth. They didn’t keep the unity with the nature, they had eyes to see themselves apart from the nature. Why humans, by chance, suddenly feel the loneliness or they are overcome with strong nostalgia? Because, it is a reason they took on the separation from the nature. A person who keeps the unity with the nature he don’t need this kind of “Return” to the nature.



Humans don’t feel the unnaturalness for thinking about the universe, because their “Alter Ego” exists into the universe. In other words, humans meet “Alter Ego” who lives into the universe and humans are taking a dialogue with them. Human symbolized such as “Alter Ego” as a name of “God” in Christian Religion or Islam, or called it as “Big Ego” in Buddhism, then humans has been living with a great respect to them just like they are big and great more than humans.



The ability of “Looking Objectively” will be watched as a special ability in my “Story”. Because now humans, as the merits and the demerits of the development of science technology and too much consumption, on the one side we advance to destroy the global environment, on the other side we can reach the initial foray into the universe, then humans enter upon a “New Era called Space Age” and they are becoming to face with unknown question like “What will you do as a human being now?” In short, in my “Story” we will use this ability of “Looking Objectively” strategically to solve these urgent themes.



For this my purpose, moreover I will bring in this new “Hypothesis” on a chain of my several hypothesizes I have mentioned so far;

  人間が、「ポスト人間」に進化する為に必要な条件とは、宇宙を舞台として、0重力~1重力間における「新しい姿勢構築」を実現するために必要な「流体家具 – 姿勢支援ロボット」をデザインすることである。「流体家具」の使用によって、人間は「人間種」としての自己を更新し、「新しい宇宙文化」を誕生させることができる。

  For our humans, the necessary condition to evolve as “Post-Human” will be to design “Fluid Furniture” to realize the “Creating New Postures” between 0 gravity and 1 gravity at a stage of the universe. Then the humans renew themselves as “human species” and can develop “New Universal Culture.”


Yes, this is a hypothesis that the humans at first needs to design a “Fluid Furniture”, then the humans needs to strengthen “Alter Ego” using by the ability of “Looking Objectively” as much as possible, at last the humans needs to create “New Universal Culture” by “Creating New Postures”, like humans could get a new evolution from the apes with a design of “Chair for the Sitting” on the ground in ancient times.



In the end, we will bring the condition of whales and dolphins they returned to the sea into the universe with 0 gravity, and about “Something the ancestors of whales and dolphins could notice in their life on the earth” we will move its stage to the universe and we will try to solve it there. The solution of its “Something” will be fulfilled as a “Task we will challenge into the Universe”.


  Pakicetus and Ambulocetus returned back to the “Sea”, but our humans trust its hope to the “Universe”.


For this work, I try to find a “Way for Space Culture Development as a New Type” that has never been conceived. Then I will practice its way as I am a test subject for it. Because I think that if we bring only today’s earth culture to the universe we should lost our “Tomorrow for Human Beings”.

Ana’s Death and Rebirth / アナの死と再生


In Mexico City, Anna, who made me feel the high potential as a space dancer. Anna, who looks at people with incredibly beautiful and strong eyes. But, I got a sad news that Anna died after my leaving to Japan. I still can’t believe, she was so young and so fine. The dead Anna has become a member of the same Extra Dimension that Elena lives in, so she appears in my work many times.



How many people have died on our planet so far? The number of dead is just enormous. The world’s population continues to grow and is expected to reach 8 billion soon. I compared the world to an “Expanding Sphere,” and thought that the world of the living exists on the “Surface of the Earth” while the world of the dead exists “Inside the Earth“. Then, as time progresses, the “Surface of the Earth” expands, but how much does the “Inside of the Earth” expand? It is difficult to imagine even if it can be shown numerically. The number of deaths increases exponentially.



The older I get, the more Ana-like beings, including my Elena, the “Inside of Sphere” continue to expand. In such a vast world, how can I find her? I thought. To meet her, I need to think of her and draw her. I felt that its reality determines the “Quality” of the encounter with her. In one painting of her, she wears “Water Wings” on her naked back and dances innocently at the beach.

私が年を取るほど、アナのような存在が増え、「球の内部」も膨張を続ける。そんな広大な世界の中で、彼女をどうやって探せばいいのか? 私は、考えた。彼女に会うためには、彼女を想うこと。そして、彼女を描くこと。そのリアルさが彼女との出会いの「質」を決めるのだと私は感じている。彼女を描いた一枚の絵では、彼女は裸の背中に「水の翼」をつけ、海辺で無心にダンスしている。

Big Family as a connected Space Race / 大きな家族、つながった宇宙人種として


Even when the Space Race is born, If they will be born irrespective of the intelligence and technology which the human beings of the earth invades into the universe, and what is also the serious distress the cosmic race feels If one can not be involved, after all, I think that the efforts of the humans will end helplessly. Because, if human’s intelligence and technology are effective to the universe as well, it must be technically involved in the birth of the Space Race and it will have some influence, and even if the Space Race is not a child by human’s science and technology, I hope it is due to extension of the humans at the very least, or a mixture, and it should keep close ties with us now. I want such a familiar relationship to exist between our human and the Space Race.



In the “Dream of Evolution” that I draw, the Space Race born from the union of Ilkai and Elena is the gift of human’s intelligence and technology, and even if several countries that carry the folding of the earth into the universe are mixed, there is no problem. The universe is vast and the direction in which the crowds will advance is a mystery to them and the direction of advance is different. Even if they encounter it, since the space where both of them exist has different dimensions, they don’t touch each other directly. So it will not be any warfare there. It is because the weapons that are applicable in the 4D world don’t pass in other surplus dimensions [C-43]. In other words, the people who entered the universe live in different space dimensions due to the difference in their degree of culture, they flourish and perish in different places. And those who could notice their foolishness can start again at “Departure Point” as many times as they want.



Through repetition of such adventure, those who have advanced into space can be trained, and the place where they advanced can be made into a place of new settlement. Also, we will create a new community among those who acquire new settlement sites. Even if each lives in a completely separate universe, it is a common “New Seed” as the same cosmic race, and there is something to empathize with. Through this sympathy, they become members of the “Big Family” of the universe.


Technique of Love / 愛の技術


Love” is also one of the universal themes of human beings. I want to contribute to improving the “Technique of Love” of men and women.

」も人間の普遍的テーマの一つ。私は男と女の「愛の技術」を高めることに貢献してみたい。どんな社会でも、その社会を動かすのは人間の欲望だ。世界は大きく変化してきたけれど、「愛の技術」も進化しているのかどうか。コミュニケーションの改革とは、一体何か? 結局、世界にはどんな変化が生じているのか。私は次のように考えてきた。
