United, Fragmented, Repeated and Impermanent World

This art work is an interactive work where the viewer becomes a part of the work.

Ito Jakuchu (1716-1800), was an early modern Japanese artist active in Kyoto during the Edo Period. Jakuchu has left us with a unique style of painting where the surface is made up of a grid of tens of thousands of squares or "tiles" that are individually coloured. These screen paintings have the motifs of "Birds, Animals, and Flowering Plants", and "Trees, Flowers, Birds and Animals". The paintings appear like a digitally constructed image that reminds us of the method of expression of pixel art. The squares paintings were possibly inspired by the designs for Nishijin (luxury woven traditional fabrics produced in Kyoto), or perhaps they were created to be made into a fabric. Pixel art was also born from functional reasons, and as a method of expression it is still enjoyed today. Perhaps this is why Jakuchu's grid painting conveys an instinctive digital feeling.
Today the internet has become a central media, contents and the connections between people have begun to change. The relationship between the maker and the viewer or person experiencing the art are becoming ambiguous. People are less viewers of contents, but directly connected to the contents, they can add information, they can edit it, they can change it and recreate it. People are more able to participate and are becoming one with the contents.

The viewer of this art work becomes a part of a world expressed as squares, as well as the abstract squares world that was inspired by pixel art work.

The grid method of painting presents us with a unique form of colour expression. Squares are painted within squares and in one grid there is a range of colours and tones. At a time before the Impressionist and Pointillist movements, it appears that Jakuchu had an awareness of colour mixing and colour theory. This work is an imaginary 3D world in which 3D objects are placed and then 'flattened' in line with our theory of Japanese traditional spacial recognition. Additionally the work uses optical colour mixing phenomenon, whereby the colours of the objects in 3D space, are combined with the colours of the two dimensional squares, colours are created from their light constituents, and so for example a purple square is made of red and blue colours.

Seen from a distance the combinations of colours of the entire art work appear to shine brilliantly. The axis of the world appears to move slowly. If you look closely at the work however, you see that the squares are not moving, the objects are moving and the detailed patterns that are created give the impression of a world that is moving quickly.
The world of the art work is created by a combination of detailed lines, with abstract squares, and the participation of the viewer.
This interactive work uses a pixel resolution that is 8 times that of Full High Definition to expresses an overwhelming amount of visual information.
