Porcelain Nude Photographs by Yasumichi Morita

DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Porcelain Nude

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Photographs

INSPIRATION:
Of all the infinite number of curves in the world, Morita considers those of a woman's body to be the most beautiful. Representing the ideal balance between softness and solidity, the female form engenders beauty precisely because of the life it teeming beneath its surface. These photographs, featuring minimalist bodies with their colors, expressions, and even the pores of their skin stripped away, raise various questions. Are they genuine bodies? Just what is "real"?

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
As an interior designer, his day-to-day work involves cutting out angles of light and shadow. However, photography goes in the opposite direction, collapsing a three-dimensional object onto flat surface. He is conscious that the transformation is a capturing of the moment where minimalism becomes a rich delusion. In this realm, Morita creates space by giving depth to flat surfaces. Desire to beauty, tension to sensuality; conflicting values are brought together the instant the shutter closes.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
When I view works of art, I crave the experience of not recognizing the images at first glance and then seeking to learn what they are. Whether the work is a silk screen, a paiting, or a photograph, I want to engage with in this way. Even in my own photography, I strive for the ambiguity that envokes questions in the mind of the viewer-is this a human form, a piece of pottery, a plant or a landscape? To me, that is art.

CHALLENGE:
I searched for and pursued beautiful curves, and inevitably settled upon the female figure. Its minimalism satisfies all of the desires of my artistic eye. It is resilient but not too solid, and its softness is balanced by scarcity of detail. It might be too erotic. But there are moments when base desire transforms into overwhelming beauty.
