Who else if not You?

A documentary film of the experience of "Who else if not You?", an exhibition work created by Daniel Wetzel (Rimini Protokoll) and the Japanese team for the 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT's exhibition "Rules?"
”Who else if not You?” is an interactive exhibition created for the exhibition “Rules?” at 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT. Taking inspiration from a live attitude survey theater performance 100% Tokyo (2013), this work is an interactive exhibit in which the viewer can experience becoming part of a data sample. From these questions whose answers are separated into majority or minority emerges a quasi-image of society. And when answers not in the majority appear physically in front of you, you realize that almost nothing is 100% either “yes” or “no.” This video is a reconstruction of the questions that were actually posed in five categories, along with the actual time frame of the experience, which is about 15 minutes.

Message from artist / creator
The purpose of this work is to give you a physical experience of how the small choices you make every day have no small part in social rules and democracy. We hope that those who were not able to visit the venue will be able to understand the aims of the work and the quality of the experience.
