Description

Artist Statement
.02 Spring and Asura is an interactive artwork that explores the interconnectivity of the animate and the inanimate. This work explores the relationship between video images of the natural world and the poem Spring and Asura written by Kenji Miyazawa translated into English by Hiroaki Sato. [ ]Using a combination of image and motion capture technology, the artwork explores the movement of light and shade in the video recordings and responds to the visitor in the space. This self generating interconnected system creates an ordering and reordering of the poetry text resulting in shifts in time movement and abstraction through the viewing of the work.
