About Mouseion

Ancient Mouseion
Mouseion is the original form of museum which ancient Greeks created.
Why should we look back now ancient Greeks who lived more than 2000 years ago?
However, the form of White House and the British museum resembles well shrines made in ancient Greece. A big and deep secret may possibly be concealed here.

Oriental proverb says that name indicates the whole body. Mouseion is not the exception of this saying applied. Great wisdom of the ancient dwelt in this word.
Taking over the name is to undertake one of its meaning. At first, we would like to give an outline of this wisdom.
  As well known, the ancient Greek planned and constructed ancient Mouseion.  The ancient Greek excelled in all points of art. The excellence appeared in design creation as spatial reorganization. The ancient Greekfs outstanding art sense had an enormous influence on human culture after them as well as their philosophy and poem.
However, art is a skill of form. If there is not a form, the mind of it is not transmitted to any one. Even if a form is clear, enormous people can realize it. Both this advantage and disadvantage of form must be recognized again, and it will be necessary to be taken in a new receptacle.
This new receptacle is present Mouseion under construction with our plan. Through this new present Mouseion, people are compelled to face with the meaning of art in civilization history again. Then, this must be useful for the person who tries to succeed to Greek art and the person who tries to resist it.

The picture sale of Mouseion
What is "beauty", indeed? It may possibly not exist? It may not, or it may be something wefll not be able to know. "Beauty" is complicated and profound as such. To solve this stumper, human beings have been struggling for a long time. Then, they learned from experience gropingly about something looks like the answer. We analyze this answer and make a new start from that point. This answer may decide the fate of all those concerned with art. Specifically, for those engaged in art business, this answer is an important key word. To know this key word is equal to have the source of wealth. Why don't you search for this clue to wealth with us?

The composition of art gallery
Art gallery of Mouseion is the place to exchange courtesies for an artist, a producer, a critic and general public. All those who visit this place can access data stored in the gallery according to their own taste. In addition, they will take part in making data as well. Mouseion's users do not have to stay passive, but can be a member of creators; Internet's interactiveness will make it come true.
An ancient art gallery was made inside a palace. Also, a palace became a museum just as it was. All museums erected based on the idea to store huge pictures (one side of which exceeds ten meters) as treasury are of antiquity. In this sense, all museums made up to the 20th century are ancient ones. Ancient museums are trying to copy and approach outward universe. Here, space is almost infinitely consumed.
  However, the 21st century's new museum is going to be built on silicon wafer in 1-cm all sides with the capacity of 5 Tera-Byte. It inexhaustibly produces universe inside itself, and depends on space isolated from the outward universe. If an ancient museum tried to take over all treasuries which should be stored there, even mobilization of all inactive spaces on the ground may run short for it. However, new museum replaces expanse of space to inner density with continuous technical innovation. Therefore, space of the same area can swallow more works.
  What brings about this big conversion? It is caused by the revolution on thought reconsidering that artwork is not a treasury but the data to show a treasury.
  Whereas ancient museums wasted huge spaces, treasuries stored there were sorted out by the taste of the administrator and then were forced to exeunt from the stage of history after his death. New museum will store all works indiscriminately, and then will sort them out and provide information of valued one with its own power. History itself dwells in this museum. Mouseion is the pioneer to bring out the potential of this new museum; starting with picture we will extend our business to all art fields including music, literature, and movie.
  From now, museum does not use the Internet. The whole museum enters into the Internet.

Event gallery of Teruo Sato
Although Japanese art has swept over the whole world with animation and lacquer ware, it still stays at a supporting role in oil paintings of western style. The reason why Japanese oil paintings have no persuasive power is that they are no better than superficial technical imitations of those of the West.
As long as the main body which creates western fine arts, picture in particular, remains unclear, Japanese oil paintings cannot overcome this technical imitation. However, in Japan, there is one painter who sensed this main body which invented western art.
If a Westerner sees works of this painter, he can find an echo of western mind and understand more about the characteristics of Orientals. Isn't that right? And then, this new understanding may become an entrance for the fusion of Oriental and Western fine arts from now on.
