New Materialism


2019

Photographer Jesula Toussaint Visser

In this autonomous project, Mayu explored to visualise the dreamy world between material and spiritual with the collaboration of Jesula Toussaint Visser, dancer and photographer.   

The projected images are Mayu’s painting collection that are made in 2017, which was about the visualisation of sounds. She tracked the sounds of surrounding in her room and put colours and textures for each sounds that she found then. According to synesthesia experience in the artist’s early teenage time, these textures and colours were decided by sounds. 

This project is aimed at visualising one’s perception. Fabric works as the connection through perception to a body in the work. The projected images are deformed by the objects and show their immaterial beings. They are beyond a body and still reflecting over a room. Are they probably the visualised sounds?
