1.11 Research Point: Toshio Shibata

These are the first two screenshots of a Google image search for Toshio Shibata. After doing the search, before I began looking at individual images I was struck by the themes that emerged from seeing the thumbnails laid out like this.

  • triangles
  • red/Green
  • resh and latticework
  • diagonal bisecting lines
  • interlocking shapes
  • slowed-down falling water
  • vertiginous perspective

There are some very strong repeated ideas emerging here – it was an interesting way to look at a single photographers work.

Looking at some of the images more closely, I really liked the juxtaposition of slowed-down soft misty water against monumental, solid, immovable concrete dams – it makes for thought-provoking contrast. The water becomes almost like a silky veil draped across the solid concrete.
