Shinichi Maruyama - Kusho

Shinichi Maruyama was born in 1968 in Nagano, Japan.
Capable of capturing this phenomenon at a 7,500th of a second, Maruyama takes full advantage of a recent advancement in strobe light technology which can record physical events faster than the naked eye can perceive them. Maruyama’s goal is to arrest in space and time the sublime intersection of two different media before they merge into one. In some respects, the project resembles a scientific experiment, but in Maruyama’s artistic hands, the total action becomes a form of Shodo (Japanese calligraphy) performance–with the gesture executed in the air rather than on the flat surface of the paper.
