Sugimoto Hiroshi, an artist based between New York and Tokyo, captured the new rays of the winter sun in Tokyo at daybreak using a Polaroid camera between 2009 and 2010. The cylindrical prism standing in his studio disperses the morning sun and separate them into different colors. Sugimoto captured that precise moment when this color-saturated world is revealed to us. In the early 18th century, Isaac Newton, known for his discovery of the laws of universal gravity, devoted much thought to the relationship between human beings and the refraction of light. The German poet Goethe, too, conducted research into optics at the beginning of the 19th century. Sugimoto is another artist who has been enchanted by light. For Colors of Shadow, the Tokyo light that Sugimoto captured through Polaroid photography has been printed onto silk scarves. They offer us a glimpse of the everyday light that one sees in Tokyo, fluttering and trembling ever so gently before our eyes.
