Shohei Fujimoto is a Japanese AV artist who utilizes light, time and space to play with the boundaries of human perception. In the past, the artist has regularly worked with fellow musicians to create hypnotizing live sets, such his most recent collaboration with Kyoka Sound. On view at ARTECHOUSE in Washington D.C. is a new solo exhibition where Fujimoto desensitizes his viewer through an array of codified installations.
Entitled Intangible Forms, each room encapsulates the viewer into a sea of luminous red lights and cubic geometric patterns. Instead of using material to sculpt his forms, Fujimoto uses mathematical code — an almost invisible form of drawing that merits precision to create tantalizing installations that are weightless, yet overwhelming, dizzying and simultaneously hard to turn away from.
“I create experiences, spaces, and structures that have both real and intangible qualities, as a means of touching human cognition and imagery, and as an opportunity for viewers to get a bird’s eye view of their abilities,” said the artist in a past interview.
The exhibition will be on view at ARTECHOUSE’s D.C. outpost until March 5. Tickets cost $25 USD for adults and $20 USD for students.
