Naoko Tosa 土佐尚子 – Sound of Ikebana : Four Seasons

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.

Getting a high – Celebrate Lah!

Level 33 Singapore

Getting a high at the top
Enjoying the view of Singapore’s city skyline, my style :)

Level 33 Singapore

There was cause for celebration, so chum D and I headed to Level 33 at the penthouse of Marina Bay Financial Centre for a drink on a breezy evening after dinner. It is the world’s highest microbrewery at 156 metres above ground.

D had a craft beer (S$17), while I went for the limited edition beer cocktail Paris (33.1 Blond Lager, Rothschild Brut Champagne, crème de cassis and gold dust) by celebrity mixologist Javier de las Muelas (S$28).
