EMAKI 絵巻 is Daniel Belton and Good Company Arts latest work featuring Japanese artists. EMAKI is a digital picture scroll of dance, sound and light with state of the art technology that connects Asian and South Pacific cultures, reflecting on the poetics of space, nature and art.

 

For EMAKI 絵巻  our digital space is a construct of the picture scroll - the scroll conjures narratives through which the dancer figure voyages. The Japanese ancient art of Suminagashi is digitised to suggest sentient hills, mountains, ocean, geology, weather systems and the Five Elements. Each episode or scene is an interaction with one of the elements - these journeys are performed by Japanese dancer Meri Otoshi. We follow her path as she navigates different environments and seasons. She embodies in her movement a choreographic meditation of each element, and a physical responding to the multi-dimension world of the EMAKI picture scroll. Otoshi conveys the human figure deeply held in nature. EMAKI creates a series of digital chapters, which reflect and project the human spirit in cinematic expression.
