CHIKARA MATSUMOTO

絵巻物マシーン

絵巻物および映像のための絵を、自己に流れている時間(=変化)の絵として描いているところがあります。それをフレーム毎に撮影することで、ビデオとしての映像をアニメーションのように見せています。だれかが絵巻物をその連続したイメージを、裸眼あるいはレンズ越しにテレビ石やテレビのモニタを通して像を結ぶのを観るとき、だれかの内側になにか空間的な想像の構造物として浮かび上がることを信じています。自分自身を活き活きと観ることができる装置道具なのです。これらの装置を絵巻を手で回して観るという意味を込めて絵巻物マシーンと呼んでいます。このマシーンはワークショップやパフォーマンスの場面で私を助けてくれる友人のような存在です。共に想像するかたちを変えながらあらわれる身体性のデヴァイスとして位置付けています。

Emakimono Machine, the Hand Scroll Viewer

I draw the picture scroll and drawing for animation at every frame as my own flow of time.
So I take a image of frame and make a video as animation and show them to the people.
I believe spatial image and something structure rise in somebody else's heart when somebody else watch the continuous images through a lens, "Television Stone" (Ulexite) and television monitor.These are the device that image forth oneself.
I call these device "Emakimono Machine", Hand Scroll Viewer.
And this machine is the existence like my friend that help me to give my performance at the scene of the workshop.
Emakimono Machine is the structure that image together where we should place it in the whole appear with constantly changing.
