Iyamari

Iyamari is a Japanese contemporary artist with a thriving career going back as far as 2008. 

While possessing a background in traditional handcrafts and Japanese painting techniques, Iyamari uses these skills in a new and experimental, more expressive manner, underpinned by contemporary scientific reasoning.  The artist empathised with Jakob von Uexküll and incorporated his basic ideas into their own thoughts and creation. 

Iyamari’s main artwork themes are 'Time and Perception', with focus on creating a discernible model of “a moment", to try to point out, and reach beyond, the boundaries of the limited human cognisance, expanding and complementing it. 

The artistic expression of Iyamari spans a variety of media, including multimedia presentations. Notably, Iyamari is the founder and director of the Telescore Project, which brings together artists and performers from diverse disciplines, including dance, music, and even software programming.

Telescore Project

Started in the Spring of 2016, Telescore Project is a world-wide collaborative art project, which takes Iyamari’s artistic interest in time and perception into a different direction. In this project, Iyamari tries to use materials that cannot exist without time itself.

It aims to familiarise the viewers with the cross-species interaction and coexistence of trees and humans. Specific trees, and their area of origin, are presented in short films inspired by the local area's culture. 

The films use a soundtrack created by digitally processing hand printed cross sections of trees, and transforming them into  unique musical scores, which serves as a tonal rendition of the tree’s unique life memories and environmental circumstances. 

The soundtrack is incorporated into the project work for the performance artists to interpret the music, along with  the tree's significance to the given area, into a dance or performance. 

 

Trees and humans have been sharing the environment for a long time. There are trees with symbolic meanings in almost every area in every country. Additionally, there are particular cultural traditions which have flourished around the use of these trees. This shows us how human cultures are affected by land and the environment. This project tries to bring them together and present the ‘universal  relationship of the tree and human'.
