      - Platonic obsession is the universe in cerebral space, a joy of the human mind. -
      Using geometric shapes as a conceptual meeting point, this two-person show attempts to bring together the bidirenctional perspectives on human bodies. Physical formation and decay summarize each interest of Yuko Kamei and Hikaru Miyakawa, however, these are the different sides of the same coin.

    • The Distance Between the Necessary and the Good

      Inspired by the sci-fi novel “Cat’s Cradle” by Kurt Vonnegut, my second solo show displayed photographic works and objects stemed from my enquriy on scientific achievements that comprise the world today. Following the novel's fictional elements, my imagination glided from string figures to skateboarding, whose origins both trace back to cultures across the Pacific Ocean.

      The basic idea of the exhibition was to examine the given situation as a score to play. Graphic notation in music provides players a latitude of interpretation. In the 1960s and the 1970s, dancers started to adapt the idea to choreography. The freest of it has been the form of improvisational performance, which proceeds through seeing and listening to the given time and space. Once the situation has mapped out, what drives one to initiate the move is the mind of play.
