Yukiko Sugiyama - Crash Phases
Yukiko Sugiyama’s collection ‘Crash / Phases’ is a collision between objects and nature, between the human and the extra-planetary world. The first part consists of dystopian pictures of artefacts and machinery abandoned in nature. The use of a near-infrared camera highlights the contrast between the decaying metal and the natural plant life. The second part is a series that records sci-fi challenges, from early spacesuits and experimental mannequins to the suborbital X-34 prototype and satellite dishes aimed into the depths of the galaxy. Nostalgic future images crop up, like a defunct NASA laboratory, and collide with the ongoing material reality to create a new future image.
