orijin Light Art Installation

orijin Light Art Installation 1995 in utukshigarara highland Museum.

This box allowed only one person at a time to view the image. Interesting it was, it was itself limited. Naturally, I wanted to take out "macro space" from "micro box" and expand macro space to a huge lighting space which would allow people to enter and experience it from the inside.

I was fascinated by the light and primary materials of this inner world of CUMOS.

In 1988, I participated in the inauguration ceremony for the Tokyo Branch of the Koyasan temple. I created "Mandala Pavilion", which was inspired by the doctrines of esoteric Buddhism and its mandala charts depicting two worlds, Taizo and Kongo. This led me to design the Taizo dome and the Kongo pyramid.

The spherical Taizo dome is filled with soothing light to represent a mother's womb filled Buddha's love. I made the dome with relaxing light and comfortable music and fashioned it to slowly swell and shrink.

The inner space was designed so that people could share an image which gave the feeling of expanding from the interior of the womb to the end of the universe. In Kongo, I tried to express the hard ascetic practices and the spiritual awakening of satori.

I buried the monitors under grids in the floor and made the image of satori by repeating reflections on the insides of the pyramid's ceiling, all four of which were covered with mirrors.

It was a visualized space of the virtual image through which I tried to make visitors simply feel the cosmology and the complexity of Stinging Buddhism.

I have to admit that I was surprised to learn that CUMOS' nesting box shared the ideas of Buddhism, cycle of reincarnation, and the concept that micro existence contains macro universe.

Spaces that Move

I attended the birth of each of my three daughters through the Lamaze technique. I wanted to see the moment when a human being is born into the world and I wanted to express this experience through spatial art.

I created "Conception of Light" for the 100th anniversary of Sendai City in 1989, and I presented "Emanation of Light," the exhibition in Sumida River-side Gallery in 1992.

Through these works I had the opportunity to express the mixture of charm, magical strength, and the wonder of life. Using various electronic techniques, I built spaces and installed the controlling system which gave the illusion of breathing spaces. However, techniques are just techniques.

In "Back to the Womb" and "The Memory of the Fetus", my theme was to express the feeling of an entire world which nobody had ever seen. If we could just trace back to our potential and hidden memories, we could then imagine what that space would be like and try to visualize it.

My role is to provide visitors with the opportunity to take note of the wonder of life and to contemplate self-existence and the universal theme of living things.

I have always believed that I should continue to create spaces which communicate feelings that will move and touch people, keeping in mind the concepts of design, the arts, and the realities of modern society.

Minori Yamazaki   April 1995

標高2000メートル長野県美ヶ原高原美術館の光の美術館で展示したインスタレーション。
"オリジン-生きること感じることの不可思議”
約300平米で天井高4メートルの空間をヤマザキミノリのライトアートとインスタレーションで埋め尽くした6ヶ月間の企画展覧会。

**************************************
様々なテクノロジーを使って息づくようなコントロールを仕掛けた空間を設営したが、それらはあくまでも手立てであって、テーマは「胎内回帰」や「胎児の記憶」という誰も目の当たりにしたことのない世界感なのだ。しかし、奥深い潜在意識まで逆上ることが可能だとするならば、きっとこんな空間であったろうと想像を巡らし、具体的な形を与えるのである。

 私の役割は、私の創る空間装置を通して、観る人に生命の不思議や自分の存在自体について考え、生きていることの普遍的なテーマを見つめ直すチャンスを提供することなのだ。

 そのための新たな“感動伝達の空間装置”をアートとデザインと現実社会の狭間で創っていくことだとつねづね考えている。

「だったかな?」というほど昔の仕事。現在も現役だが、20年近くたってしまって、パターンはボロボロになってしまっている。全面リニューアルを希望します。
