Sachiko Kodama, Still Life
Although the still life has been a major subject in art for a long time, Sachiko Kodama’s Still Life is not static at all. It is a kinetic sculpture using magnetic black liquid (ferrofluid), moving as if it breathes in a glass container shaped like an apple. The ferrofluid in the glass buds and changes shape like seeds, vascular bundles, or bunches of fruit. The contrast between the black (the color of the ferrofluid and the shadow) and the red (the tray) is strong and vivid.
