Abstract(in English) For not creating unwanted chaotic situations during communicating among remote people, a novel technology is urgently needed to be developed to exchange existing feelings of all participants in both directions, so that a participant can sense the other person's bodily existing through his own body. To achieve this specific aim, a co-existing communication system has been developed which utilizes shadow of other person's body. As a result, different Ba of remote people can be integrated through their shadow, so that all communication participants can be positioned at a certain Ba and a creation of the bodily interaction accompanied with an entrainment which is similar to the one recognized in a face-to-face communication case can be realized. Accordingly, each participant can develop co-creative activities while adjusting 'Ma'(timing and spatial distance) as if they are playing an improvised drama. It can be conclude that this present method is a promising communication technology with which all participant can exchange their explicit information accompanied with the Ba's context.
