Quantized Crackles of Emotional Scales
The artworks of Ryota Matsumoto develop and demonstrate the spatio-temporal conditions of our ever-evolving urban and ecological environments. They are created to act as the catalyst for defining speculative changes in notions of cities, societies and cultures. Essentially, the work facilitates a reciprocal dialogue among those multifaceted realms in the morphological nature of constantly shifting topography and geology.
The drawings explore the hybrid drawing techniques combining both architectural and visual art languages. The varying scale, juxtaposition of different forms, intertwined textures/tones and visual metamorphosis are employed as the hybrid/multi-layered drawing processes to question the nature of representation. The application of these techniques allows the work to transcend boundaries between analogue and digital as well as between two- and multi-dimensional domains. The process reformulates the composition within which thresholds between organic and technological elements become indistinct and the spatial and temporal variations emerge.
