Life-sized images of the artist and other fellow m embers of the Kyoto-based artist collective Dumb Type are projected onto t he walls of a darkened room from a tower of computer-controlled video and slide projectors at its center. The figures move like specters around the perimeter of the space\, in a looped choreographic sequence made variable by a visitor-activated motion sensor\, which intervenes to restart one of the projections when triggered. Confined to their autonomous projections\, these eponymous &ldquo\;lovers&rdquo\; overlap at moments within the sequ ence\, whether running past each other or pausing in a gesture of embrace\ , yet their bodies never make contact. Made just one year before Furuhashi &rsquo\;s death from AIDS-related illness\,&nbsp\;<em>Lovers</em>&nbsp\;sp eaks to what the artist has described as &ldquo\;the theme of contemporary love in an ultra-romantic way.&rdquo\; Presented for the first time since its inaugural exhibition at MoMA in 1995\, the installation showcases the results of an extensive conservation effort recently completed by the Mus eum&rsquo\;s media conservators.
