Nobuhiro Nakanishi’s new installation layers multiple transparent images in a sequence to create a larger more complete piece of art. The first thing that came to my mind after looking at Nobuhiro’s work was systems thinking. The simple thought process of understanding how things influence one another within a whole. OK, maybe it’s not a simple process but the interaction of each individual frame of Nobuhiro’s work makes it seem effortless.
There are too many times where we get caught up in a project or task
where tunnel visions sets in and we become fixated on singular portion
of the entire system that we’re trying to influence. It’s always a good
practice to parcel out each element of the project or task that you’re
working on and take note how each piece influences the others. In my
experience, doing this exercise provides new insight on how the whole
project or task works as a whole and therefor unveiling elements that if
changed could innovate the entire system.
