Aki Sasamoto‘s contribution to 2010, Strange Attractors, consists of the careful arrangement of sculpturally altered found objects and insistent repetitions of performances that alter and add to the feelings of the installation; the objects themselves provide guidance for the artist’s structured improvisation. Sasamoto demonstrates and develops a kaleidoscopic worldview out of deeply personal episodes and a hypothetical mapping of the universe. In an attempt to understand and feel the mathematical concept of strange attractors in dynamical systems, she jumbles her recent obsession for doughnuts, fortunetellers, hemorrhoids, and things detected in the world.
