Tokihiro Sato to speak at IU Bloomington

Tokihiro Sato, one of Japan's best-known artists working in contemporary photography, will deliver an artist lecture at Indiana University Bloomington at 5 p.m. 3 September in Room 102 of the Fine Arts Building on campus. room 102.

The visit is co-sponsored by IU's Center for Integrative Photographic Studies, the College Arts & Humanities Institute and the School of Fine Arts.

In Sato's ongoing photo respiration series, tiny points of light or illuminated lines from a flashlight or mirror record his movements through space. The resulting photographs capture exquisitely detailed scenes punctuated by pinpoints or linear patterns of light that depict the artist's presence, but not his image.

At IU, Sato will discuss his new work, featuring images of a peach tree in the forest surrounded by light. The lecture is free and open to the public.
