ryoichi kurokawa superimposes 3d architecture + nature data in breathtaking installations



ruins and nature transformed into immersive digital visuals

Berlin-based, Japanese-born artist ryoichi kurokawa works with 3D data from architecture, ruins and nature to produce immersive and breathtaking images RV installations, recordings and concert pieces. among his various digitally generated works – which have been exhibited across the world in international festivals and museums, including Tate Modern, Centre Pompidou, and venice biennial– ‘s.asmbli / subassemblies’ pursues the relationship between nature and humans through an architectural scale perspective. the project was presented as a concert piece at the nemo biennale in paris, in october 2021, while it was also exhibited as an installation wall at the OCT-LOFT creative festival in shenzhen, in 2020.

weave a new digital and architectural timeline

in ‘s.asmbli / subassemblies’, ryoichi kurokawa (read more here) specifically explores the relationship between nature and humans, translating his findings into multimedia installations that take on an architectural character. the main sources of this project are 3D data acquired by laser scanning of architectures, ruins and man-made nature. these are then warped and reconstructed in each module as subsets to create a renewed timeline with layers of order and disorder, while exhibiting the force of nature and art. ruins, overgrown buildings and disrepaired architectures are layered, dynamically reconstructed and rendered in multi-layered depths.

the concert version of the “subsets” consists of a single screen, surround lighting and a 4.1-channel audio system. Meanwhile, the “re-assembled” installation version is being developed by tracing the materials and building them in space with 4 surround screens and 4.1 channel sound. ‘s.asmbli’ is developed as an alternative rendering in the form of a VR 360º piece and ‘s.asmbli [ wall ]is another immersive cubic projection with quadraphonic installation.
