If you ever wondered what it would be like to step into a machine and witness the inner workings in all of their layered glory, graphic artist Yousuke Fuyama‘s latest performance might be exactly what you’re looking for. As an artist, composer, programmer, visual and graphic designer, and VJ, Fuyama combines an incredible variety of musical and visual skills to create a performance that resembles the most intimate grids of a computer’s interior landscape.
Performed in front of an audience at the Trigram Aoyama Tokyo Festival, the video uses trigrams, geometric figures composed of three lines, to introduce us to layer upon layers of lined visuals. Apart from being an experience similar to stepping inside of a densely electric machine, the art is somewhat difficult to describe. It’s an electrifying, grating, infinitely layered, geometrically spectacular, metallically and grittily soundtracked, all-encompassing moment in time. It’s beautiful and captivating, but a bit exhausting at the same time.
