Juria Yoshikawa looks back


Juria Yoshikawa is the artist that gave – and still gives – us a feast for the eyes with her electric light shows. Northern lights, liquid lights, swirles, particles, loops, dots, kaleidoscopes, watercolours, cosmic colours, cosmic kisses – she’s done it all.


Now you can see a retrospect exhibition with some of her finest works gathered in one sim: There is Bedazzle Dome, Nest of Light, Aurora Remixed, The Wild West of My Watercolor Set, Mixed Opposites and I’m Not Here. On a raised bridge you walk from one to the next, but, of course, what you should do is just to fly from piece to piece, into them and immerse yourself in their spectacular lights and sounds.


To quote the exhibition catalogue: «A typical Juria Yoshikawa virtual artwork mixes kinetic objects, animated texture, ambient noise and av animations. She inevitably chooses scales larger than conventional gallery work because she is interested in people experiencing the work in a physical way – flying through them, riding on them and socializing within the art. To Juria virtual art is about freeing oneself up to create in ways she finds impossible in real life.»

Yep, so it is. Have fun.
