像 – IMAGES
Plattenvereinigung 2016, August 7th - 9th
As a part of the project Series and Cycle, Japanese artist Yotaro Niwa is working on “像 – Images”, an installation, which is exploring the diverse relations of images and realities. Here’s what he wrote about his work:
As modern human beings, we live in a cognitive world that is an entanglement of two perceptual spaces: a world of everyday reality and a virtual world experienced through various media, in particular the perceptive space experienced on the internet. When we think about these two spaces, we also think about other items such as national/international, urban/local, global/regional, central/marginal, imaginary/physical, potential/optical, online/offline.
The project “像 – Images” is a work in progress, literally. It will continuously be developed in several formats in the future, way beyond the end of Yotaro Niwa’s residency at Plattenvereinigung.
