キオ・グリフィス(ヴィジュアル・サウンドアーティスト、キュレーター、デザイナー、ライター)神奈川県生まれ、ロサンゼルス/ 横浜拠点。ニューメキシコ州立大アルバカーキ校、Otis/Parsons School Of Design卒業。
アメリカと日本を主な拠点として、メタニュアンスな概念を機軸に、多様な表現を展開する。時代とともに変遷する社会や言動、それらを視覚的・聴覚的に再生、追体験させるという手法を取っている。そこには一貫して「失われたものに新しい命を吹き込む」という主題が秘められている。2016には愛知トリエンナーレへの参加、環太平洋地域の様々な言語や地域の人々から「色」にまつわるメッセージを集め、それらの「声」による作曲を試みる。

I am an inter-disciplinary artist working with visuals and sound, curator and editor producing diverse trajectory projects between the U.S. and Japan. My work posits not simply reflections of this pan-nationality but also of pan-sensory experience. Fine-tuning of the listening experience develops through exposure to the auditory chaos of discordance, euphonies and speech. I strive to reconstitute an ‘optiphonic’ paradigm to create an immersive social communal experience by breathing new life into what may be lost in generational transference. 

 

Growing up in a reactive industrialization of the new economy, oncoming western influences on popular culture and the meanderings of shifting side to side between two cultures—I develop a code of aesthetics that could imaginary translate in some uncanny nuanced realms, mondegreens that could change meaning and sound, literary ideas and poetic expressions which change form and color while passed along in translation. 

 

The work I create are sound-based compositions. They range from projected visuals, invented languages and experiments in cross-cultural work—interpretations are built and objects are formed from the most accessible materials; a sculpture built from a poem filtered as a haiku; bottles harnessed with radio parts crossing the Pacific for unknown answers; a myriad of manifestos throughout history that play in loops as in a one hit wonder EP record; the understanding and negotiating of the Pacific War battlefields fought by relatives who were enemies then; and how spoken word can transition into noise or possible music from unrecognized languages. 

 

My current body of work is a process of shuffling information to find meaning. In a world of self journalism in which documentation is a daily activity of sharing texts and images, the general idea of “reading” has changed. Reinvention and newly invented languages, truncated communication techniques, the relative associations and the reading between the lines, faces, spaces and the air surrounding us—we continue to interrogate. 

 

The anomalies travel from wood to paper to the retina. The information is picked up in pieces and processed in the world of mind ; the expectations to exist and be “real” and those “ideas” become synonymous with “differences.” In a previous sound installation, I have collected recordings of private readings that were introduced into a universe of voices, each formulating into a particular axiom relating or unrelating in the space. The newspaper series which i begun in 2016 during the sound installation, were exercises in finding the notations that constructed the text fields. These evolved into the notated collage work exploring the boundaries of fiction, theories and news. Found books are opened up to create flow in an attempt to resuscitate a new algorithm, in sculptural and animated forms. These works are a type of antithesis to contemplate on when the battery runs out of our handheld gadgets.  

 

言語や既存の規範にとらわれることなく、メタニュアンスを軽やかに受信受容することで起こる(起こす)状況に期待と興味をもっている。ロサンゼルスと日本を行き来する日常、その回転軸をスピンアウトさせ世界の各都市、地域へ赴き、グローカル論の視点から、アートプラクティスとして活動領域を社会へと染み出し、はみだしつつ多様な活動の現場に居合わせ、目撃し、共鳴する。その当事者たるアーツ•コミュニティ、オルタナティブ•スペース、ポップアップ、様々なプラットフォームを持つクリエーター等を、メキシコ、南米、はたまたヨーロッパ各地から「ケーススタディ」として紹介していく。「越境」とは、単にラインを越えるということ以上に、ボーダーという領域を双方に開いていくことであり、彼らの活動をなぞることで、分離するラインから融合する結節点(リゾーム)を形成していく力としたい。
