Artist Talk: Taisuke Koyama in conversation with Gemma Padley @ Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation

Taisuke Koyama’s exhibition, Generated Images, thematises the possibilities of photographic expression in the post-digital era. He aims to provide a space for audiences to experience ‘environmentalised’ images in the form of the tangible objects and data created by digital devices.

In this talk, the artist will be joined by Gemma Padley, freelance photography journalist and editor, and Projects Editor at British Journal of Photography.

They will discuss Koyama’s exhibited work and practice, ranging from the creative and mechanical process behind the artworks, to the hidden colours of his series Pico to the position of Koyama’s work within the panorama of Japanese contemporary photography.
Touching briefly on the history of abstract photography, Koyama aims to enable the viewer to experience concepts such as the distortion of light when recorded digitally and the potential of photographic media through ‘non- determinacy’.

The “Generated Images “exhibition is supported by the Arts Council Tokyo and Sony Europe.
