Merging the minimum constituent unit for both digital imagery and biological organisms, “PixCell" (Pixel + Cell) is conceived as the key proposition of the work by Kohei Nawa. Devising the use of new materials and techniques, Nawa activates artificial materials with chemically manufactured interfaces evocative of living organisms. This incorporation of the natural and the artificial conjures a renewed animistic sensibility that challenges our visio-tactical experiences. Given that nature and artifacts are assembled from particles, his sculpture makes no distinction between solid and liquid, and is shaped according to gravity and other universal laws of physics. Just as living organisms behave according to their DNA, particles follow their own innate properties. Nawa engineers conditions that allow particles to begin auto-generative processes, and to sculpt the exhibition space continuously.
Open from 12-6pm, Tuesday-Saturday.
