L’arte è uno specchio dei tempi e della società. E’ questo il concetto alla base di questa bellissima installazione di Karuka Kojin composta da lenti piane e lenti concave che distorcono la percezione delle cose…al Museum of Contemporary Art di Tokyo.
HARUKA KOJIN, CONTACT LENS 2011: "two types of lenses are used, one completely flat and clear and the other with a warped surface to create interconnected circles of varying sizes. as the light travels through the acrylic, the images on the other side are flipped and contorted."
The kolam, or "rangoli" is a traditional mandala, a geometric pattern, that women design in front of their houses during festivities. In Tamil culture is a strong form of expression by the women, who express their feelings in this secret way.
