Naoko Tosa’s “Sounds of Ikebana: Four Seasons”

The renowned Japanese media artist transforms Singapore’s skyline with a huge projection mapping installation at Marina Bay Sands’ ArtScience Museum.

On show recently from 16 – 19 January as part of Singapore Art Week and Art Stage Singapore, “Sounds of Ikebana: Four Seasons” is a series of videos showing various liquids such as paints and oils created from sound vibrations.

The moving installation at the ArtScience Museum is shot at 2,000 frames per second using high-speed photography, and features the artistic influences of the Kyoto Rimpa School of thought.

Inspired by Japan’s four seasons, “Sound of Ikebana” also includes haikus (short poems) by famous Japanese poets, and colours representative of China, Malaysia and India.

The installation marks the world debut of Dr Tosa’s latest art collection. Her earlier works have been exhibited worldwide, including at the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the New York Metropolitan Art Museum.
