Shin'ichi Takashima

This work is themed around thoughts and sensations regarding the human body and video, and based on a perception of the human body as a fragmentary existence in a reciprocally supporting relationship with environments and spaces, rather than as an integrated entity centered around "thinking=seeing". Photographed images of minute phenomena triggered by atmospheric motion that we cannot see directly point the viewer's senses toward the physical presence behind the camera.
