Atsuhiro Ito

: V.R. Specter 
- visible sound, audible light
December 1 – December 16, 2012
@ Snow Contemporary (Tokyo):


from SHIFT (a 2011 interview to Atsuhiro Ito by Julie Murikawa,
Atsuhiro Ito “crafted an instrument called the “OPTRON,” which outputs noise from the electrical discharge of a fluorescent light, when he was working on fluorescent light art exhibits in the 90’s. He plays the OPTRON not only as a solo act but also with other musicians both in Japan and overseas”.

An excerpt from the interview:

Why did you want to be an artist? Could you tell us the process of becoming an artist?

This is a problem of wording, but I have never been wanted to become an “artist.” (To me, it is hard to understand what people in this country want to achieve by becoming artists. It almost seems like the word “artist” itself can impress people. I know that it is a very convenient word to explain what people do though.)

In my case, rather than trying to contribute to the world, I’m more interested in creating things with my own hands and playing and listening to sounds. Since I have never stopped doing this, people started to think that this person might be an “artist” and refer to me as such. I have never really added any meaning or social contributions to my art and performances, and will continue to create and perform just because the visual and audible joy and stimulation keep me excited. By the way, my social positions are ‘an art creator and an OPTRON player.’


If you were not an artist, what would you be instead?

I don’t even know. Maybe a criminal or something. I bet that I’d be making a little better money than my current situation.

“asemic sound cycles” by félix-antoine morin [& other/older performances]

Asemic Sound Cycles at Galeri Salihara
April 10, 2022 – April 24, 2022

Asemic Sound Cycles (2022), by Félix-Antoine Morin, is an exhibition specially developed for the Salihara Arts Center (Jakarta, Indonesia). This exhibition consists of a series of graphic scores on polyester film as well as a sound installation in the center of the exhibition space.

Asemic Sound Cycles consists of a series of graphic scores on polyester film as well as a sound installation in the center of the Salihara Gallery.

Félix-Antoine Morin’s graphic scores represent existing musical forms whose basic structures are drawn from his repertoire of compositions. By this process, Morin maps out the metamorphosis of sound phenomena through a rhythmic and poetic graphic expression. He encourages the ambiguity between musical notation and pure pictorial symbolism.

The kinetic sound installation arranged in the center of the space is inspired by the “locked groove” technique, an expression invented by Pierre Schaeffer in the mid 20th century to describe this phenomenon in which the needle of a record player falls indefinitely in the same record groove. In the same way, this sound installation follows a unique circular route. This consists of a microphone that reacts like the needle of a record player on materials and textures arranged throughout the floor.

Asemic Sound Cycles is an exhibition specially developed for the Salihara Arts Center.

Félix-Antoine Morin’s graphic scores represent existing musical forms whose basic structures are drawn from his repertoire of compositions. Through a syncopated visual construction, by which he instinctively creates new connections between signs, he shifts the initial writing toward material abstraction. Preserving traces of the sound origin, the accumulation of elements gradually transforms each composition into an autonomous language that no longer references music.
By this process, Morin maps out the … [click to read more]


First solo exhibition of Félix-Antoin Morin in Turkey: Asemic Sound Mappings (Feb 19th – Mar 12th, 2022):

[…] The graphic language of the artist does not tend to have a fixed meaning, leaving the interpretation of the works free to the viewer, encouraging the ambiguity between musical notation and pure pictorial poetry. The artworks at the “Asemic Sound Mappings” exhibition display layered elements moving in the void, carrying rhythm to the surface by simultaneously expressing Morin’s musical and pictorial sensibilities […]

colori e immagini della scienza: dal 22 marzo @ palazzo delle esposizioni (roma)

L’allestimento a Palazzo delle Esposizioni della mostra “Colori e Immagini della Scienza” è il capitolo conclusivo di una delle tredici tappe del progetto europeo INFN/CERN Art&Science Across Italy, un percorso tra arte e scienza che nel biennio 2020/2022 ha coinvolto oltre 5000 studenti da tutta Italia. L’allestimento presenta oltre 70 creazioni artistiche ispirate a temi scientifici, realizzate da più di 200 studenti di 21 scuole superiori di secondo grado di Roma e provincia (con la partecipazione di una scuola di Pescara e una di Ancona), e affiancate a opere di studenti dell’Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma.

Nel suo complesso, la tappa romana di Art&Science Across Italy ha coinvolto complessivamente più di 1000 studenti che hanno lavorato con il supporto e la supervisione di ricercatori dell’Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare e di Sapienza Università di Roma, per la parte scientifica, e di artisti dell’Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma, per la parte artistica.

ArtScience Across Italy è un progetto europeo per la diffusione della cultura scientifica curato dall’Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN) e dal CERN, con l’obiettivo di promuovere la cultura scientifica tra gli studenti del quarto e quinto anno dei licei scientifico, artistico e classico, coniugando i linguaggi dell’arte e della scienza.

Alla sua terza edizione, Art&Science Across coinvolge per il biennio 2020/22 tredici città italiane (Bari, Cagliari, Frascati, Genova, Lecce, Napoli, Milano, Padova, Pisa, Potenza, Roma, Torino e Venezia), per un totale di oltre 100 scuole e un totale di 5.650 studenti impegnati in attività di formazione e produzione di opere artistiche, nel contesto di Percorsi per le Competenze Trasversali e l’Orientamento.

Per ognuna delle tredici città, il percorso è articolato in quattro fasi – formativa, ideativa, creativa, competitiva – seguite da una mostra locale e da una selezione nazionale che avrà come teatro la mostra conclusiva “Colori e Immagini della Scienza. Nell’arte della ricerca scientifica” nel maggio 2022, al Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli. I vincitori della competizione nazionale, selezionati da un comitato internazionale di esperti, prenderanno parte a un master sul rapporto tra arte e scienza, al CERN di Ginevra o in uno dei laboratori nazionali dell’INFN.
