Kenji, a Japanese artist, filmed a group of works of art called "Nature Temperature Life", using thermal induction photography to record the surface texture of different animals and extend the artistic conception of mountain, land and sea. Through the work we seem to see the signals of nature, temperature, and life when the shutter is pressed.
Why did you use animals in your shootings for Ugan Concept? Did you find anything in common between them?
K: Nature,temperature and life are the greatest feelings what Ugan concept bring to me when I share with them . I chose animals as a subject to explore our esthetics. In the process of understanding Ugan concept, new ideas and concepts constantly put forward. Wood has annual rings and the knots. And the animals have the skin texture and fur. They all carry signs of life and let us feel the warmth of life.
The name of this series is very interesting. Can you introduce to us about the works?
K:I named the series “Nature·Temperature·Life”. Human and other creatures are all living in these spaces. I made analysis and dissection again and again on them. The image of mountain came from camel,the land came from elephant, and the ocean came from buffalo. I deliberately enlarged certain parts of them in my presentation of the relation between life forms and the natural features, combining them with images created by the thermographic camera. The “Nature · Temperature ·Life” in the images are influenced and connected with each other, forming people’s basic living space. At that moment, I realized that all the life forms are adhered to nature and nature itself is an existence with powerful life.
