Layering is an every day task of anybody and well everybody working in the design world, artist Nobuhiro Nakanishi uses this every day tool as his form of expression. The Japan based artist’s body of work contains breathtaking and often massive in scale layering photography installations. Nakanishi creates his artwork by capturing a photo continuously over time, afterwards he laser prints every photo and then places them on an acrylic. Each frame actually shows a simple change, thus when layered Nakanishi’s photography work turns into a sculptural installation.
This series portrays changes that take place in everyday life, like the sun rising or ice cream melting. These ordinary events were photographed at regular intervals, printed on transparent film and assembled in sequence. Capturing the accumulation of time as a sculpture allows the viewer to experience the ephemerality of time. We are all subject to the passing of time, yet each of us feels and perceives it in our own way. Time itself has no shape or boundary and cannot be fixed or grasped. When we look at the photographs in these sculptures, we attempt to fill in the gaps between the individual images. We draw from our physical experiences to fill in missing time and space, both ephemeral and vague. In this series, I attempt to depict time and space as sensations shared by both viewer and artist. – said Nobuhiro Nakanishi
