Born 1971 in Gifu, Japan Lives and works in Tokyo, Japan Using silky cloth as a medium, Liminal Air Space-Time allows us to perceive the sensations relating to gravity and time. The cloth, floating in space, eliminates the boundary between the viewer’s physical and imagined sensations and creates a meditative space akin to Zen, or that of a Japanese garden. Although the cloth is programmed, it takes in a complex balance of air, light, temperature and humidity as it sways and changes continuously. The accidental interactions of the external factors surrounding the location of the cloth, together with the artifice of control, cause changes and misalignment in the programmed movements. Eternity cannot be created by mechanical movement alone but can be produced when nature intertwines, bringing in chance and destroying regularity. Using the movement and circumstances of a single material — cloth — the fragility and uncertainty of existence is questioned.
