poster for Toru Shiomi “Nature of Civilization”

This event has ended.

Taken at first glance the images of Toru Shiomi appear as city nightscapes. Upon further inspection the forms take the shape of a map. This birds eye view of electronic parts, suggesting an enchanting, fantastical world, with a tension formed through the interplay of light and shadow. In an age when we are surrounded by digital technology, the electronic presence has become something natural to us, perhaps even taking over nature itself, and these works open up the rich aesthetics of this sphere.
