Dumbtype Agustin Lara from Art 346 Digital Media UNR

Dumbtype is an artist collective based in Kyoto, Japan.  Members are trained in various disciplines, including visual arts, theatre, dance, architecture, music composition and computer programming.  their work consists of exhibitions. performances, audiovisuals, and publications.  I believe their work S/N to be the most important work because it was the last work to include cofounder Teiji Furuhashi.  Not only was it the last work to include Furuhashi, but it was a work about AIDS, and unfortunately Furuhashi had AIDS and passed away a year later in 1995.  some of their works require the audience to be seated up to sixteen feet above the stage where the artists are performing.
