ABOUT THE INSTALLATION
by Shohei Fujimoto
ARTECHOUSE continues its 2020 NYC season with Intangible Forms, an audio visual journey into both the known and unknown by Japanese multi-media artist Shohei Fujimoto. This multi-sensory installation highlights the connection between living beings and inanimate objects through patterns created by the rhythms found in repetitiveness and modularity of the world around us. The results are dramatic, visceral, almost operatic in nature, inviting guests to exist in a space and time all its own, for the duration of the visit.
The centerpiece installation invites us to see the intangible as tangible using kinetic laser modules set in a hazy soundscape. But what is it all about? ”I’ve been trying to generate virtual consciousness and, in extension, virtual life in this work, triggering a deeper sense of humanity in ourselves.” - shares Fujimoto. This central idea continues through a series of four more works throughout the space, all of which are created to exist in their own time axis with limited functionality, that imitate life phenomena around us.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Shohei Fujimoto is a Japanese media artist who explores perception and space through the minimal and precise use of controlled light from laser projectors. In this work, Fujimoto focused rays of light reflected onto half-transparent mirrors that are suspended in the air and connected to rotating motors.
Light, time, and autonomy are recurring motifs that travel throughout the exhibition and coded operations serve as a building block for Fujimoto’s process of exploration. Often, he refers to code and the mathematical operations as the invisible markers that create form. Sculpting imagery not in a particular shape, but sculpting the mathematical operations behind the image to give shape. Both intricate and alluring, Fujimoto’s works are prime examples for a new way of drawing and creating visual artworks.
