Based on my research at Reversible Destiny Foundation and interviews with related people in New York, together with my past fieldwork in Japan, I will consider the possibilities of Reversible Destiny Architecture in zero gravity that might be realized in a coming space age. This presentation will be accompanied by the display of my models. In the past, I have explored through painting the issue of spatiality and dimensionality and the expansion of our bodily perception. I have seen much in common between the visions of Reversible Destiny Architecture proposed by Arakawa + Gins and the possibilities of a new sense of the body that the next space-age generation of humans will acquire in a condition totally liberated from gravity. I would like to imagine what kind of Reversible Destiny Architecture the two would envision, should they survive into the future space age.
