Artistic Propositions


Examples of Art that Elevates the Spirit

We include here examples of artistic propositions to be interpreted freely by Japanese artists which could incite the imagination of the Japanese.

We encourage artists to make new suggestions.  We suggest that any ideas used be appropriately cited to the authors to empower and continue to inspire.  We encourage  artists to tell us about any interpretations so we can share their work with others, link them across disciplines and work with them to amplify the impact of creative works.

These propositions or ideas for artists are published in, Le rayonnant…un art vers l’Infini…?  (The Radiant…An Art towards the Infinite…) 2004, 2017 Editions Caractères, Collections : Cahiers & Cahiers.

Art rather than words are used to interact with a crowd inciting our imagination and anchoring a powerful experience that ignites us to create with our spirit.

Because art can do what words cannot, elevating us to what is most noble or beautiful within, it provides a collective experience that can arouse us to realize change.  Artistic propositions ideally suited for a large crowd or gathering can illustrate how art & the spirit uses crisis to go beyond our previous best and create a new Japan.

The texts below are quoted from Dr. Paul Briot, Le rayonnant…un art vers l’Infini… 2004, 2017 Editions Caractères, Collections : Cahiers & Cahiers. 

The suggestions or possible interpretations in the links are by Nathalie Ishizuka and can be improved by Japanese artists.  The shodo illustrations are by Saiso Shimada.

Please press on the links to see the full artistic propositions.

Artistic Proposition 1:  

1. FACES OF SUNS 

“A field of sunflowers, moving sculptures.  The flowers converse, look after one another, bow in all directions.  Eyelids of suns.  Us.”

Dr. Paul Briot, Le rayonnant…un art vers l’Infini…?

Artistic Proposition 2:

2. A PURPLE CLOUD

“A purple cloud condenses into a rain of ideas.”

Dr. Paul Briot, Le rayonnant…un art vers l’Infini…?

 

Artistic Proposition 3:

3. WAVES OF LOVE

“Waves of warm colours, roses, the sumptuous orchestra of reds embracing us, setting us ablaze, crowning our hearts.”

Dr. Paul Briot, Le rayonnant…un art vers l’Infini…?

Artistic Proposition 4:

4. THE TALL TOWER

“A tall pillar (or column) goes through all the colors of the rain-bow.  There is more than one way to access the Spirit.” Paul Briot, Le rayonnant…un art vers l’Infini…?

Artistic Propositions by Individual Artists can be used for a small gathering of friends in a gallery, collectively for a March 11th anniversary, for a large public celebration or even inspiration for the Olympics.

Four Red Hot Air Balloons in the Shape of the Islands of Japan Unite Above a Crowd

Imagine for March 11th or the Olympics, or another moving event where a large crowd is gathered in Japan, four red hot air balloons in the shape of the four islands of Japan coming together above the crowd (or safer yet holograms projected into the sky that take the shape of the four islands).

The shapes move towards each other to form Japan.   Music accompanies the shapes depicting Japan coming together after March 11th  launches our imagination on a new Japan.  Faces of the sun emerge from the audience and dance with them, ideas rain down on Japan from a purple inspired cloud, waves of love can be experienced, or a tall tower in the colors of the rainbow experienced.

Note:  This feat with holograms might be considerably easier to create than the one presented by the Japanese for the bid for FIFA 2022 world cup where holograms which hoped to be used to show the match all over the world.  Or else precision lighting could be used inside a large building.
