Film - Noriko Maeda: Foundations

Canada, 2018 | Media/Exhibition

Calligraphy is a multidimensional art.

In calligraphy, the flow of time breaks through into a visible form. Each brushstroke converses with the ancient past and carries its movement into the future.

In calligraphy, you can feel sound. As ink weaves through the strands of a brush, sounds of rainfall and wind become tangible.

This short film was produced by John Northcott and David Michael Lamb of Mail and Plate for Noriko’s 2018 book launch exhibition at the Toronto Japan Foundation. This film captures calligraphy in motion: The dance of a brush and the rush of ink through paper fibers. Calligraphy’s many aspects can be seen only in time.
