From an early age, artist and architect Arakawa had an insatiable curiosity that led him explore many worlds, ranging from medicine, biology to art. Through this outside-the-box exploration he found a philosophical affinity for other polymath artists, including Leonardo da Vinci and Marcel Duchamp. In this talk, Miwako Tezuka of Reversible Destiny Foundation, introduces selections of archival materials that illustrate ARAKAWA’s range of interests and examine how these materials influenced the core visual and conceptual language in his art.
