Ryoichi Kurokawa



Somehow I'm on the Japan focus. Here a lovely installation by Ryoichi Kurokawa:

Japanese artist, born in 1978. 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.

The company was founded by Vipul Rajgor, who started 25 years ago by taking out a loan from a bank to buy a Xerox printer and offered his service on a road side. Now he employs 30 full-time employees.

Stone on Stone


By Rob Carter: "Stone on Stone" is a stop-motion video animation that uses the architectural language of High Gothic and Modernism to invent a contradictory history of their evolvement. The theme starts and finishes with the vast and unfinished Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine, NYC. It is contrasted with Le Corbusier’s La Tourette monastery in France, competed in 1960. The video uses this anomalous but single-minded architectural vision as the foundation for a new emergence of Gothic religious expression, resulting in a complete and unified fantasy cathedral – akin to the building that the Church of Saint John might have aspired to be.
