Naoko Tosa - Sound of Ikebana : Four Seasons

In conjunction with an on-going exhibition, internationally-renowned media artist Naoko Tosa transforms Singapore’s city skyline with an exterior projection on the ArtScience Museum façade.

“Sound of Ikebana” – the theme of four seasons inspired by different cultures showcases Japan’s four seasons alongside strong artistic influences of the Rimpa School. Colours representative of China, Malaysia and India have been included to acknowledge the exhibition’s staging in Asia. Shot at 2,000 frames per second using high-speed photography, “Sound of Ikebana” is a series of videos that showcases vibrant images using various liquids (such as paints and oils) created from sound vibrations.

Naoko Tosa is an internationally renowned Japanese media artist who believes in the artistic concept that “various cultures in the world are connected just as one culture from the ancient time of human history at unconsciousness level overcoming nationalism”. Connecting this concept to a computer, she has created a new concept called “Cultural Computing”, creating a new frontier of art products to lead society to a richer future. Covering a wide range of areas, Naoko’s art includes sculpture, visual art, video art, digital art, just to name a few. She has exhibited her artworks at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the New York Metropolitan Art Museum and Japan Creative Center at Singapore among many locations worldwide. Naoko is currently a professor at Kyoto University and a visiting professor of the National University of Singapore.

Photography – Flight of Fancy

NDP Flypast

Flypast at National Day Parade 2013 rehearsal. It’s a moment which never fails to make me feel patriotic.

Fighter Planes at NDP

It’s always super exciting to await the arrival of the fighter planes with their fancy formations – the roaring sounds perk you up with anticipation, and you have just that 3 seconds to capture them on screen. Pretty lucky to get this, with one single shot.

Was quite taken by this majestic tree beside Cavenagh Bridge. It would have witnessed Singapore’s transformation over time since the 1870s…if only we can put our hand on the tree, close our eyes and see those wonderful images.
