Ryota Kuwakubo & Reico Yamaguchi
|Vernissage le jeudi 7 décembre 2006|
Ouverture du 8 décembre au 27 janvier 2007
Ryota Kuwakubo and Reico Yamaguchi want to be known as «Perfektron». Their installation at the Lucy Mackintosh Gallery is about COCOSOCOASOCO. It displays a group of artworks that will seduce and mislead the viewer with their size and colour. Perfektron invites the visitor to play with their mental and spatial perception.|
COCOSOCOASOCO consists of objects painted in grayscale; it is a simulation of aerial perspective. Moreover, the objects have a distorted optical relationship between one another, created by different scales to emphasize the linear perspective.
Perfektron’s work lies on the boundary between digital and analog. Their artworks come alive with the participation of the visitors, or the consumers. It is understated technology that makes sense; reduced to its purest form, thus evoking the ancestors of digital media.
There is no visible technological process in COCOSOCOASOCO, but the objects are drawn and designed on the computer, to be reproduced with great precision on a planar surface and then built in 3-D. Ryota Kuwakubo and Reico Yamaguchi want to surpass the disillusionment gravitating in technology nowadays.
