Rising and Falling – Only Time Will Tell

Wainwright, Chris (2010) Rising and Falling – Only Time Will Tell. [Art/Design Item]

Type of Research: Art/Design Item
Creators: Wainwright, Chris
Description:

An installation at Suzaku Gate Plaza as part of the Festival of 1000 Candles, 1,300th Anniversary of Nara Heijo-kyo. Wainwright created a dual projection of circular screens with a pine tree between the two, a configuration which recalls the Japonisme of Cezanne’s painting Mont Sainte –Victoire. Two figures at a coastal location semapore in slow motion with red and green light sticks. Although obsolete as a means of communication Wainwright found that semaphore is still used at construction sites in Japan and took this as a reference for his installation. The participating artists were: Tina Keane, Anne Lydiat, Ken Chiba, Keiko Kamma and Taisuke Morishita.
