yoichi kamimura E perfect circle [extract]

"perfect circle [extract]" is a reconstruction of the sound installation piece "perfect circle" created at Aomori Contemporary Art Centre (ACAC) in 2016.

This sound installation is a combination of soundscapes composed of sounds recorded around the world of the spring tides that occur on full and new moon days, and documents containing the locations where the recordings were made, photographs of those locations, and receipts of the food bought and eaten at that time.
This work uses sound to represent the cosmic-scale natural phenomenon of the Great Tide, caused by the relationship between the gravitational pull of the moon and the earth, and at the same time suggests that very small human consumption activities are taking place on this planet. It also offers a glimpse of Kamimura's personal journey confronting the oceans of the Great Tide.
