Yasuaki Onishi: reverse of volume (RG)

May 27, 2012

Our fourth film for Rice University Art Gallery followed the work of Japanese artist Yasuaki Onishi. We showed you some behind the scenes photos in a previous post in early April, and here are a few more behind the scenes images we took before the public opening on Friday, April 13th.

We released the completed film online two weeks ago and have received some incredible feedback since then. Below is from a post on Anthology Magazine.

The installation artwork, Reverse of Volume, by Yasuaki Onishi, is stunning in its own right—anyone in the vicinity of the Rice Gallery in Houston between now and June 24th should run to see it in person. But for those of us who can’t make it to the show, this beautifully made film by Mark and Angela Walley transports you directly to the space. Through the camera angles and pacing, you feel close to the process, and to the physical details of this massive undulating sculpture. The filmmakers did a wonderful job crafting the film to match the contemplative, tactile, and subtle grace of Yasuaki’s work.

Our film has been featured on Vimeo Staff Picks, Swissmiss, It’s Nice That, The Fox Is BlackSpoon & Tamago, Computer ArtsThrashLab, Co.Design, OneEightNine, CultureMap Houston, The Artful Desperado, and Raneytown. We’re so excited to have the film receive so much attention. It was such a pleasure to work with Yasuaki and to continue our series for Rice Gallery. Watch the  film below.
