The pursuit of the possibilities of colour and light has been the consistent theme of my work. Recently, time has become a major factor in my work. I have begun to explore new colours, shapes, and spaces produced by the action of time. I would like to use this opportunity to develop this theme. Especially during residency, I would like to use the colours extracted from city lights in Berlin as a base, I would like to create new work that combines the themes of my work.
At the end of last year, I happened to connect an old television to an old DVD player. To my surprise, the sound that was supposed to have been erased in editing emerged from the DVD, and I experienced for myself the moment when light was converted to electricity and then changed to sound. That inspired a growing interest in sound art. I realized that another space can be created by changing light to sound or changing sound to light. I hope to pursue my search for light and sound in Berlin, which overflows with both. I will gather various types of light and sound, and create new artworks while exploring the possibilities that exist between light and sound and the spaces that are born from those effects.
I have been constantly pursuing the possibilities of colour and light.
I began with two-dimensional art, moving into three-dimensional objects, installations, and moving images, changing the form of expression as necessary.
Recently I have explored new colours, shapes, and spaces produced by the action of time.
For the past few years, I have been subjecting sunlight to various forms of spectral decomposition, and using the colours obtained to make video works and then creating installations with these works.
During the various artist-in-residencies I have attended since Banff, Canada in 2002, I have enjoyed the way that my work absorbs and is changed by the landscapes, materials, and people that I encounter along the way. I think that working in residence is the most effective method for me, and I hope to continue this path in the future.
