Open Studio

GOKI MURAMOTO | Study for IMAGRAPH

Imagraph_dm.jpg

An open studio will be held to share the current status of Goki Muramoto's "Imagraph" series (2020-). The "Imagraph" is an optical apparatus that projects a video whose color is distorted to compensate for blood-red onto the eyelids, which the artist began to produce in 2020 as "a medium that arbitrates between two primordial attitudes: projecting the image and closing the senses. The venue will consist of two rooms, one of which will be used for the screening/demonstration of Imagraph, while the other will be used for the exhibition of the photographic works and materials that study this media.
 

Goki Muramoto 《Imagraph》series (2020-)の現状を共有するオープン・スタジオが開催される。《Imagraph》は、「イメージを投影する、感覚を閉ざす、二つの原初的な態度を調停するメディア」として、2020年から作家により制作が開始した、瞼に血色を逆算したビデオを投影する光学装置である。会場は2部屋で構成され、片方の部屋ではImagraphの上演/実演会、もう片方の部屋ではこのメディアを研究する写真作品・資料が展示される。

Goki Muramoto |村本剛毅
 

Artist. Born in Yamaguchi, Japan.  Lives and works in Tokyo. He studies Image through the inventing and sculpting of original media. Major works include the 《Imagraph》series, a media that projects a video onto closed eyelids; the 《Lived Montage》series, a media that implements an fictional perception in which we share our vision when we share an object of our consciousness; and the dictionary/sculpture 《Media of Langue》, which depicts a map of meaning onto the boundary between languages. 

アーティスト。山口生まれ、東京を拠点に活動。独自のメディアの発明・彫刻を通してイメージを研究。主な作品は、閉じた瞼に血色を逆算した映画を投影するメディア《Imagraph》series、意識する対象を他者と共有するときに視界も共有する架空の知覚を実現するメディア《Lived Montage》series、言語の境界に意味の地図を描画する辞書/彫刻《Media of Langue》。現在東京大学学際情報学府に所属。
