The first time I saw Takami Nakamoto, was at last years Mutek Montreal.
He was presenting his another project Late Speculations by Nonotak Studio, co-founded by Noemi Schipfer. I was immediately drawn in by the visual quality of the light installation, see-trough textiles and two projectors. Interesting to see, yet a bit more challenging to photograph.
This year, the artist brought back another project formed by TN and Sébastien Benoits for a ten day residency and then a performance at the Contemporary Arts Museum presented by Mutek.
This year’s set was also designed by Nonotak Studio and as with most projects with elements such as led lights, spotlights and smoke they delivered quite the performance. The combination of heavy base and electric has the perfect balance to the Takami Nakamoto & Sébastien Benoits’ dreamlike journey.
They were kind enough to give me some time to photograph both their residency and show which was pleasant to attend. I strongly encourage you to check out more of their work :
