distortion

TOKAS-emaging / Tokyo, Japan / 2019

This mesmerizing coalescence of steel and light exists on the precipice of experience and remembrance.

As light is caught in the rotating steel crescent of the installation, it curves and refracts through a myriad of lenses, finally reconfigured into new constellations that pour onto the walls. As with our memories, the once straight rays of light are bent out of shape, stretched and spread, finding themselves in strange silhouettes irreconcilable with the event that caused them. As quickly as something is perceived, it is relegated to our memory - and no sooner begins the process of distortion.
