Ryoko Akama works with installations and sounds who approaches listening situations that magnify silence, time and space. Her sculptural work engages with mundane objects and invisible energies such as magnetism and gravity, employing small and fragile objects such as paper balloons and glass bottles in order to create tiny aural and visual occurrences that embody ‘almost nothing’ aesthetics. She also composes text scores and performs a diversity of alternative scores in collaboration with other artists and musicians.
She runs melange edition, co-curates ame and independent publisher mumei publishing.
At No Bounds she will be performing with Nakul Krishnamurty as part of Tactical Contact at Kelham Island Museum.
