Shohei Fujimoto [ 1989 - Present ]

Follow

 

Shohei Fujimoto is currently based in Tokyo. His work explores perceptual experiences of essential nature through attempts to concisely capture the data and facts behind phenomena and shapes, emphasize them, and complicate them.

Light, time and autonomy are the motifs of his work. Everything is coded and serves as a component of the exploration process. Fujimoto often calls code and math operations invisible markers that generate shapes. When these are properly constructed, it becomes a protocol that connects the viewer and the work. Instead of sculpting an image in a specific way, he emphasises the data contained in the mathematical operations behind the image from a more primitive perspective and generates a new image. In other words, it is an attempt to concisely capture the pure data and facts that the base image originally has, complicate them, and find a different perspective. The purpose of his photographs is to explore the essential space, the visual experience, and the means of creating art. There is a perceptual experience with new properties, where minimal and organic (wild) properties overlap.
