Intro
(...) The shine of the lenses is fascinating - they seem to reflect and to swallow the light in the same time. Desiring to discover something in the deap one will discover just its own reflection. That „eyes“ of the cameras don‘t tell about what they ever saw. (...)

Artist list

Jiro Kamata
Colourfull sunglasses has been material and source of inspiration for Jiro Kamata‘s surprizing pieces of jewellery in the last years. Reviewing it seems to be like an easy and cheerful prelude to the new „Momentopia“ work.

The turn to new optical systems - hightech photolenses was a consistent step in the work of Kamata. Heavy and mysterious, cuttet with highest precision they are like jewels. The artist treats them like jewels. Carefully he looses that high-grade lenses out of the camera and sets them like a goldsmith into delicate silverframes.

The shine of the lenses is fascinating - they seem to reflect and to swallow the light in the same time. Desiring to discover something in the deap one will discover just its own reflection. That „eyes“ of the cameras don‘t tell about what they ever saw. It‘s a matter of somebodys own phantasy to imagine the pictures which that lenses once fixed on films.
