“Vessel – XYZXY” is a piece created by Taisuke Koyama focused on “body” as a motif. This series produced in collaboration with Japanese sculptor Kohei Nawa and derives from the performance piece “Vessel” by Nawa and French/Belgian choregrapher Damien Jalet.
Koyama explored whether a reality exists wherein the body as vessel has been transformed into a digital image, using the 3D scanned data of performers’ bodies. The artist finely adjusted the angle, position and lighting of the 3D data in the space simulated by the 3D modeling software. The captured image of simulated data is then printed out and re-scanned with hand held scanner.
