“VESSEL-XYZXY” (2016) is a piece created by Taisuke Koyama for the first time to focused on ‘body’ as a motif. This series produced in collaboration with Japanese sculptor Kohei Nawa and derives from the performance piece “VESSEL” by Nawa and french/belgian choreographer Damien Jalet. In this work, Koyama explored whether a reality exists wherein ‘the body as vessel’ has been transformed into a digital image, using the 3D scanned data of performer’s bodies. Specifically, Koyama finely adjusted the angle, position and lighting of the 3D data in the space simulated by the 3D modeling software. The captured image of simulated data is then printed out and re-scanned with handheld scanner. In the group exhibition “AICHI TRIENNALE 2016 TRANS DIMENSION”, Koyama exhibited 18 pieces of 6.6-meters-long prints of this series. The title ‘XYZXY’ refers to the coordinate axes of a two-dimensional image and three-dimensional space. This book is co-published by Paris-based RROSE EDITIONS and taisuke koyama project. The prints has a shiny appearance because it’s printed in richly silver and black ink.

Ever since he published “entropix” in 2008, Taisuke Koyama has been consistently capturing the boundary between urban cities and nature. Through his practice, he has been expanding the framework of photography and exploring experimental expressions that question the ways in which photography exists in the digital age. This book is a first anthology introducing “Rainbow Variations”, a series which Koyama has been working on since 2009. It includes comprises 70 images, including “Rainbow Variations” in which he tries to transform and iteratively amplify the photographic images of a “rainbow as an artefact” created by macro-photographing rainbow-colored publicity posters, as well as his newest series “Pico”., The book was edited and designed in collaboration with Swiss designer duo, Maximage.

In summer of 2013, I have participated to the “Artist-in-Residence at the Soy Sauce Warehouse” project, a part of the 2013 Setouchi Triennale, on Shodoshima island, Japan. I have made four new series during this project and exhibited them in a hundred-year-old soy sauce warehouse. This self published book is a final result of this project. It covers 19 plates of my new works and installation views. Special edition with an acrylic box framed small print is also available.
