Under the influence of her career graduated from the department of engineering, Michiko Tsuda has pursuit the nature and principle of video logically and consistently. Through her carefully choreographed presentations of the space, she reveals the characteristics of medium elative to the sense of vision, such as cameras or mirrors.
Her works depict the performance and the spaces very simply, without any computer graphics nor video processing, in this sense quite normal reality. With a slight manipulation and skilled presentation, however, Tsuda creates unique and unreal world which leads the viewer to a narrow borderland of reality and virtual reality. She tries to occur an intentional confusion to eh viewers and make them doubt what they see, promoting changes in their way of seeing.
In this first solo show at TARO NASU, Tsuda shows 7 works from 3 series, including 2 latest video works. The new video works are descended from he representative series “Occupants and King in the Configuration Forest”, exhibited at ICC Tokyo in 2012. She also re-construct her previous work “reward”, which is consist of images in a found camera, captures from Google street views and her own texts, as a unique installation.
