This work is the work of two artists, Matsusaka Daisuke and Taiki Kusakabe.
Matsusaka Daisuke's music is created by analyzing environmental sounds. Each sound that is heard at an unexpected moment is processed in a special way to create a sound that moves unpredictably back and forth, left and right, creating a sound space with no center anywhere.
While ordinary recordings inevitably deviate from the artist's intentions depending on the performance of the playback device, the reverberation level of the room, and other factors that affect the viewing environment, the elimination of the center of sound paradoxically resolves this problem, and even allows the listener to enjoy the work while moving around.

The painting by Taiki Kusakabe depicts a peach blossom branch on a mirror surface filled with water. As with the music, the ever-changing and unpredictable shapes are copied into a square with no distinction between top, bottom, left, and right, creating a multifaceted expression that complements the music.

Furthermore, in giving final form to these works, Matsusaka focused on the concept of "reproduction" based on the idea of the non-reproducibility of environmental sounds, and produced "data (the most accurate but infinitely reproducible)" to "paintings (absolutely unrepeatable)" on "limited production CDs with a design cut from a painting on the disc and "direct cut The "data (the most accurate, but infinitely reproducible)" to "paintings (absolutely impossible to reproduce)" are expressed step by step in the format of "a limited production CD with a design cut from a painting on the disc" and "a record produced only once by direct cutting.

Please enjoy "Spring Wave" in various ways.




制作にまつわるこれらの選択に共通するのは、日常における一期一会の瞬間性とそのすべてを「元来与えられているもの」として再提示し慈しむ眼差しであり、そこに既製メディアフォーマットの特性と特注品という意味を加えることで、この「Spring Wave」は芸術と体験と所有にまつわる思考を促す彫刻作品であると言えるでしょう。
