Masamichi Shimada

Portfolio2023_Masamichi_Shimada

Born in Japan in 1978
The forms and behaviors of the natural world — the flight of birds, the movement of insects, and the structure of flowers. Natural manifestations influence by elements such as time, temperature, atmospheric pressure, and humidity, such as the swaying of trees in the wind or the shapes of waves on water. Physical phenomena like light, waves, and the passage of time. Inspired by the sense of “mystery” these evoke, I am inspired to create three-dimensional pieces using LED light sources and industrial materials like iron and plastic. These works are then presented as light installations.
Over the course of my career, I have showcased my work at light festivals in more than ten different countries.

鳥の飛ぶ姿・昆虫の動き・花の構造など動植物の形態や行動。風に揺れる木々や水面の波の形のように、時間・気温・気圧・湿度などの要素によって変化する自然の表情。光や波、時間などの物理現象。それらを観察していて感じる”不思議”からインスピレーションを得て、LED光源と鉄やプラスティックなどの工業用素材を用いて立体作品を制作し、ライトインスタレーションとして発表している。
これまでに10カ国以上のライトフェスティバルにて作品を展示してきた。
