UNTITLED (PEACE) by Yuichiro Nishizawa

on September 16 | in Art & Photography | by | with No Comments


This work was born out of a need to engage people on the street with an idea of fundamental human importance: Peace. On 11 September 2001, the fragility of peace became immediate and real not only to the citizens of the United States but to people all over the world. Destroying peace, whether deliberately or accidentally, requires the initial actions of just one person. This does not mean that peace cannot be protected and maintained. The preservation of peace requires the awareness and constant effort of every person in daily life. This is an ongoing project. – Yuichiro  Nishizawa

 

Yuichiro Nishizawa was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. His interest and investigation deals with the influence of technology on our experience of the world around us. Nishizawa employs a wide range of media and methods to create opportunities for viewers to turn their gaze inward as they navigate throughout the unfamiliar. His work has been exhibited both in the U.S. and internationally. Since 2004, his innate interest in function and form, conjoined with his investigation, has led him to pursue custom furniture design and fabrication. nishizawa holds a BFA in Film/Animation/Video from the Rhode Island School of Design and a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate and an MFA in Art and Technology from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He lives in New York and teaches at Bloomfield College in New Jersey.  You can see more of his work at http://www.liminalspace.org.
