We tried to develop an interactive system that could help us recreate our conscious selves by calling on Buddhist principles, Asian philosophy, and traditional Japanese culture through the inspirational media of ink painting, kimono and haiku. "Recreating our selves" means the process of making the consciousness of our 'daily self' meet that of our 'hidden self' through rediscovering creative resources deep within us that may have been forgotten but still resonate with vital meaning. In other words, this interactive system is based on the effort to meld our consciousness and unconsciousness in complete harmony. It is difficult to achieve this through traditional logic-based interaction. We succeeded in reaching this goal by setting as our target of scientific computing images from the above traditional Japanese media.
