Artist Interview: Hiroyuki Oki


Flash must be enabled to see the video player.

Hiroyuki Oki trained as an architect before deciding to study film at the Image Forum Institute of the Moving Image in Tokyo, and his interest in architecture provided a complement to his work as an “experimental documentarist.” In the artist’s eyes, architecture and film are but two different ways to articulate social spaces and experiences: films generating space, architecture generating images.

Oki was featured in the Walker Art Center’s exhibition How Latitudes Become Forms: Art in a Global Age. For more information about the artist and his work, visit http://latitudes.walkerart.org/artists/index.wac?id=147.
