Sound, light and the flow of time sensed in randomly encountered scenes can summon up personal sensationsand memories, the experience creating an intimate connection between ourselves, and what we see before us.This exhibition takes as its theme “interaction” in the sense of conversation or dialogue, and features threeartists who encourage active engagement with their works by acting on the senses and memories of those whosee those works. AKAMATSU Nelo, ISOYA Hirofumi, and SASAKI Rui all take their cues from familiar phenomena.Superimposed on the installations here—such as Akamatsu’s Chijikinkutsu , which incorporates terrestrialmagnetism; Isoya’s Flowers and Bees, Translucent Archive , which illuminates different types of time andmemory around honey; and Sasaki’s “Liquid Sunshine” series, inspired by the frequently cloudy skies and rainof Toyama—are things the artists have sensed about their own individual connections to the world. As theirsouls touch our souls through these works, we in turn notice our connections with familiar things, and begin tosee the world from new perspectives.
