Japanese artist, born in 1978, lives and works in Berlin, Germany. Kurokawa’s works take on multiple forms such as installation works, recordings, and concert pieces. He composes the time sculpture with the field recordings and the digital generated structures, and reconstructs architecturally the audiovisual phenomenon.
It’s doing it is an online group exhibition of computer generated images that autonomously updates on a daily basis over the course of 45 days. All of the works in the show are instruction-based artworks expressed through computer programs written by the artists. These programs generate new images once daily that can be viewed on the website. Each instantiation of the show, while being similar to the previous and following ones, is unique, emphasizing the expressive, data-driven, and intelligent possibilities of randomness for art creation in the context of the digital. Previous iterations of each artwork can be seen by changing the date in the top right of this page. Follow us on Twitter to get a daily update of all the newly generated images throughout the duration of the show.
Generative art refers to art that in whole or in part has been created with the use of an autonomous system. An autonomous system in this context is generally one that is non-human and can independently determine features of an artwork that would otherwise require decisions made directly by the artist. In some cases the human creator may claim that the generative system represents their own artistic idea, and in others that the system takes on the role of the creator.
Recurring themes throughout his career include the urban landscape, surveillance culture, privacy and alienation in the city. Stanza is interested in the patterns we leave behind as well real time networked events that can be re-imagined and sourced for information. Stanza uses multiple new technologies to create distances between real time multi point perspectives that emphasis a new visual space. The purpose of this is to communicate feelings and emotions that we encounter daily which impact on our lives and which are outside our control.
Breathing is an important issue has always been, not only from a medical perspective. The unique for bodily functions characteristic of being able to act deliberately in an uninterrupted flow involuntary, offers interesting starting points. Over a chest breathing is measured and transmitted in real time to a base. This translates the data permanently in a drawing, controlled by parameters such as the intensity, the frequency and the harmony of breaths. Simultaneously, the duration of this process is demonstrated by the continued overwriting.
