Her impressive oeuvre ranges from photography art, media art, software art, sculpture and scroll, to video art. Naoko Tosa, the Japanese media artist internationally renowned for her fusion of ancient Japanese aesthetic with cutting-edge technology, introduces Digital Dimensions—a series of her Genesis video art projections.
With dry ice and Japanese colored inks on water as her principal materials, Tosa captures the aesthetic event of her art through utilizing high-speed cameras.
“From where I start, using a high-speed camera, I saw the many interests in beauty”, Tosa said.
Tosa discusses ‘hidden beauty‘, as one of the compelling inspirations behind Digital Dimensions. She tries out of curiosity, venturing into many things, that includes making use of high-speed cameras. She also spills how the colors present in her art exhibits displayed were handpicked by Filipinos themselves.
One of her previous works, the Sound of Ikebana, is also displayed in the art projection exhibit.
The Ikebana-like shaping is shot by a high-speed camera, wherein it is generated by sound vibrations to liquids such as pastel, color, etc. Tosa expresses the hard work in the execution of the Sound of Ikebana—taking 6 months for the completion of the artwork.
If you’ve got free time in your hands, don’t miss this opportunity and feast your eyes and mind with Dr. Tosa’s dreamlike art projections.
Digital Dimensions by Dr. Naoko Tosa runs until March 31, at the 3rd floor of Yuchengcho Museum, RCBC Plaza, Corner Ayala Avenue and Senator Gil J. Puyat Avenue, Makati
