Re-imagining the built.
Daihei Shibata

Re-imagining the built.

This idea, the mirroring of an image (moving or still) reappears in art, often prompted by enabling technology, regularly. As a device it can produce images which are irresistibly mesmerizing. Sometimes the device can also liberate information from an otherwise obscuring context. This deceptively simple video, the record of a train journey from Shinosaka to Tokyo, by the device of video mirroring, radically transforms the very essence of the landscape. By removing the ground from the entire journey, Shibata has revealed a world of drifting forms, pulsing and vanishing into an invisible horizon. New and unimagined structures bloom and flourish, unmoored by gravity or physics. A whole new typology of landscape emerges through the simplest and most ingenious of tricks.
