I tame the sun

Light is the subject of all of Akira Inumaru’s thoughts.
It is what gives power to the plants,
it is what transforms the materials, …
the essential element for all that lives and all that is created.
The work follows a process that begins with a photo
in which the artist focuses on shadows,
then he draws with precise control
and lastly through a method he calls solar distillation
a magnifying glass is used to burn the paper
and create a new image.
