Gallery OUT of PLACE TOKIO is pleased to present Makoto OSHIRO's solo exhibition titled "Cycles" this coming July.

Aside from his activity as a live performer using self made instruments, Makoto OSHIRO has been creating various installation works mainly based on sound, and focuses on characteristics such as the interference of light and vibration.
In this exhibition, we will be introducing his installation piece "Cycles." This work focuses on the sound emitted by relays, and combines several of these devices to generate multiple cycles in space.

"Cycles" can also be considered as a piece of sounds changing moment by moment at site, composed based on the relay's function as a switch.
In "Cycles," the coils in the relay devices convert electric signals into physical motion. By activating the switch, it transmits another electric signal to the next relay, and creates a chain reaction of cycles.
Furthermore, the relays are divided in to several groups, and each relay will have slight differences or lags set up by the artist in advance, and as total it will expand with multiple time bases.
These complex layers of waveforms that scatter into the space will cause each individual audience to perceive a peculiar sense of time.

We sincerely invite you to experience the phenomenon and time created by Makoto OSHIRO.

*This new work is based on the installation work "Cycles" that Makoto OSHIRO presented at Gallery 20202 in 2013.
