Ryoichi Kurokawa – subassemblies
‘subassemblies’ is an audiovisual concert that pursues the relationship between nature and the human-made through a perspective of architectural scale. The piece is based on 3D data and filmed footage of human-made architecture, ruins and nature. Distorting and reconstructing the data into different subassemblies, artist Kurokawa from Osaka created a renewed timeline with layers of order and disorder, exposing the force of both nature and art.
Ruins, nature-invaded buildings, and architectures in disrepair are superimposed and rebuilt dynamically. The resulting unusualities, rendered in multi-layered depth, extend the perception of floating not only between nature and the human-made, but also between abstract and concrete phenomena. The motions in the work cancel physical law and form a hybrid of natural and artificial components, transposing entropy and negentropy to enhance those unusualities.
RYOICHI KUROKAWA is a Japanese artist living and working in Berlin, whose work includes installations, recordings and concert pieces. He describes his works as time-based sculptures and melts sound and image together into a single unit. His works are true compositions – symphonies of sounds imagined and produced as well as recorded – that, in combination with video material and computer-generated aesthetics, change how the spectator views the familiar. In recent years, his works are shown across the world at a wide range of international festivals and museums.
