DETAILS OF THE WORK
AWARDS 2018 FINALISTS
MaruTangle is a creation combining me and Zentangle art. Through this work, I am expressing what I felt in Kyoto using sound, dance, and art. It is a simple creation that consisting of footage viewed on a large screen. I created footage and music, and the music, dance, and art all come together, fusing Japanese culture with modern art. The rotating objects enabled the production as a single venue. With the rotating sun as the backdrop, I wanted to spread this throughout the world as a Japanese piece of art.Upon entering the sun, one will find the impressive MaruTangle. I would be happy if many people would look at it.
Thanks to the "NEWVIEW AWARDS 2018," I was able to create many pieces of art. I am grateful for being taught how fun new expressions in "an imaginary space" are.
