Drawing on Space” is an attempt to open up the future of visual art through the fusion of art and XR, in collaboration with artist Koji Shiroshita and XR creator Mifuku.
Koji Shiroshita is an artist who consistently explores the “essence of painting” through series such as “Completely Untitled” (2005–), which constructs images with delicate lines using the classic mediums of pen and ink; the “PICTURE” series (2020–), which questions the boundary between painting and photography; and the “FOCUS” series (2020–), based on blurred images found in SNS, such as photos not yet fully loaded, and scenes from movies or videos with out-of-focus backgrounds.
Since 2021, the “Drawing on Space” series has employed VR equipment as a medium, treating space itself as the support. This approach brings new physicality and dimensionality to the act of drawing, traditionally confined to flat surfaces, and paradoxically deepens the connection with the real world.
Mifuku is a creator who focuses on connecting the context of existing art with XR expressions, as seen in works like “Given: Marcel Duchamp” (2022), which reinterprets Marcel Duchamp from a VR perspective.
Drawings by Koji Shiroshita are reconstructed by Mifuku, transforming into various formats including VR, AR, and flat representations.
This project also invites viewers into the creative process through workshops.
The “Drawing on Space,” where each participant’s unique movements and poses manifest as individual drawings, serves as an experimental venue for exploring the physicality of painting in the contemporary era.
