'Organisms of Control' is a series of sound sculptures made of felt, paper, used car parts, amplifiers and speakers.

In these works Keita uses melodies that you can usually hear at train stations and in shopping centres in Japan. The melodies are used to control people’s behaviour and psychological state, e.g. to prevent commuters from committing suicide at stations.

The car parts are used, partly as a response to recent events in Fukushima, Japan. The car parts are intended to lead viewers to think about the failure of technology, or the consequences of a world in which all technologies fail – a quite dystopian image.
