Inside the room are traditional folding screens and panels, around which are kouzo trees. Patterns that might be found in nature have been drawn in in this artwork with fine lines and dots, not manually but through programming mathematical models – a long-time endeavor for Kimoto. The patterns have been chosen carefully out of a vast array of patterns generated by repeated calculations performed on the computer, then adjusted down to the last pixel. The images on the panels, which have been printed on Nishinouchi paper – Kenpoku-produced Japanese washi paper famous for its fine-grained texture – then overlaid with gold paint, present a thorough and exquisite world with a soft, luminous touch. It was Kimoto’s aesthetic sense that deftly united computing with traditional craft. Over in the planetarium in the Hitachi Civic Center, visitors can experience dynamic videos that make the most of the dome-shaped screen.
