Morio Shinoda (1931-) was greatly influenced by the geodesic concept of Buckminster Fuller and in the late 1950s, Shinoda started to create three-dimensional works based on the theme, “tension and compression”. Shinoda’s three-dimensional works make mass objects float in the air by “stretching” and “pulling” wire against gravity, which induce visual discrepancy and a sense of tension with a continuous peaceful and stable force without going slack. Shinoda’s work formalizes borderline strained relations expressed by object in the air and compaction property of mass, and what makes them new and unique is that those elements are controlled in his works.
The artificial spaces created by Shinoda’s sculptures are formed by structural dynamics and energy, which go beyond the boundaries of art.
