Hiroyasu Matsui : “Cubes” Series (Photo Constructions)

::

What exactly is a photograph?  

… In choosing film as my medium for artistic expression I thought I must first understand and assess its essence and characteristics. At the same time I wanted to avoid perceiving my subjects through conventional values and interpretations, which is why I needed to create a suprematistic image. [ AS ]

I try to express contradicting elements such as photo and graphic; planar and three-dimensional; static and dynamic. Instead of expressing an image by photographing a particular subject, I perceived it as a two-dimensional art form consisting of light, thereby creating an image using the light from the lightbox.

Execution

Photographed cardboard cubes.
Uploaded to computer and fixed the density.
Printed outline on black paper and created masks.
Exposed while peeling off the masks on the light box in sequence.

“In 2010 I began to ride my congenital attraction for architecture: its huge volumes and gigantism, its shapes and textures… Fascinated by perspective I was taking photographs without fully understanding what my attention was being attracted too, what I was trying to represent with a shot and subsequent post-production. Photography was an opportunity to take a fragment of reality and give it a meaning, but also, conversely, as an expedient to let a significance take possession of reality to bring out himself. The contrast between these two visions became the source of my own reflections. Slowly I realized that psychology was an integral part of my creative experience. That I was not trying to represent architecture, but to use a photograph as way to strike and confuse my perceptive system. Therefore I started producing the first works that were later to be structured in the “Istigkeit” series…

While creating these images i realized that i was getting ever closer to the idea which was guiding me. Trying to invalidate the perceptual and cognitive mechanisms involved in the conceptualization of a given entity by our brains. At first sight each work in the “Istigkeit” series seems different from what it is; and what it is; is not always visible, or at least not clear and obvious. Volumes are artificially combined in the shadows and give rise to solids whose meticulous analysis reveals their illusory value. You follow a surface which then splits. You focus on walls and windows, but these interact and merge into conflicting objects and paradoxical perspectives. The sight is lost in the complexity of textures, intersections and overlays. Nothing is what it is and everything is what it seems. And sometimes, during the perception of what it seems, inside the mental mechanisms that lead to the interpretation of any given scenario, it’s possible your Ego cannot impose itself on a more primitive interpretation, rooted both in individual, collective, cultural and archetypal symbolic components…” ~ Mattia Mognetti

A short filming project based on the serpentine pavilion 2010 designed by Jean Nouvel. The project seeked to abstract the spaces with the use of close ups, colour and the construction of the edit. The project also looked at representation of spaces. Collage and re-representation in 3d were also used…

‘Downtown Memories’ series captures classically un-photogenic neighborhoods of Marrakesh through nicked and dirty car windows panes. Shooting encased in a moving vehicle, Chraibi managed to achieve well-composed, satisfyingly grainy images specked with points of light. He shows the true nature of the constructions of a city by taking us on a journey into a universal city. The shapes and shades of black & white structures seem familiar, but the vision is blurred and distant, through rain and fragmented light.
