excerpted from a recent interview with Arata Sasaki in HitsPaper :

..... After I completed the photo series like More Turns and Stop Down. I really went back to the drawing board and I started from square one and just started looking at noise for a long time, positive and negative. I just looked at visual types of noise and began to focus on how the eye creates what it sees - how the eye views texture: how the eye decides if something is wet or dry. And in the process I started to think about an image differently, I started to think of it as pure abstract visual matter and the artist as someone who moves stuff around a rectangle with some understanding of how people might react to the way that stuff looks............With the current images I am making I have been trying to create the physical presence of light. Instead of recording light which is what I was doing with the photography I guess. I am trying to make the presence of light as physical as possible with a printed object.
