Shunsuke Takamizawa “Screening Organon”
This event has ended.
*CASHI will be closed for the time being from Thursday, April 2 due to the health concern related to COVID-19. The reopening date of Takamizawa’s solo exhibition “Screening Organon” will be announced on our website and SNS.
Shunsuke Takamizawa has created artworks that examine the essence of social infrastructure such as screen images and communication technologies. These works are made using primitive media such as power generation.
He uses an elemental means of generating electricity: the Seebeck effect. The Seebeck effect is a phenomenon in which an electric current flows through metal when a temperature difference is applied. Takamizawa generates voltage in semiconductors, called Peltier effect device, by creating a temperature difference using candles (for heat generation) and water or air (for heat radiation). The voltage drives Takamizawa’s “organ” constructed by combining electronic components, aluminum cans, and single board computers that he collected in his daily life. Viewers can then see digital images or webpages through this “organ,” highlighting the social infrastructure we routinely enjoy and the materiality of the information that travels at lightning speed.
In this exhibition, Takamizawa will update the works exhibited at his previous solo exhibition “Screening Organon” (curated by Rintaro Fuse and held at Yotsuya Unconfirmed Studio in 2019) and include some of his drawings. The exhibition will open on 26th March, when members of the public are welcome to visit.
from March 26, 2020 to April 12, 2020
