ARAKI SHIRO


日本出身の Costume Designer。イギリスのボーンマス芸術大学において,大学院修士課程を首席にて卒業。同年、MA Outstanding Contribution Prize を受賞し,英老舗新聞 Daily Echo の News 欄にて、一面に取り上げられる。コンセプトは、非日常空間の演出。人工的、自然的な素材を MIX して生み出される有機的なフォルムづくりをクリエーションの特徴としている。また、前衛的な costume object をメインとした異分野との実験的コラボレーションに力を注いでおり、costume を空間における新しい生命体として位置づけ、生命が根本的に備わる普遍性を取り戻す試みを行っている。



Shiro, originally from Japan is a costume designer who is focusing on collaboration. It is an important source in terms of creating his costume designs and expanding creative abilities. His concept is to produce an unrealistic space by making avant-garde costume constructed from creative forms, volumes and textures using fabric, artificial and natural materials. Its concept is also inspired by the visual work, which costume designer Eiko Ishioka created in films. For example, in Dracula (1992) directed by Francis Ford Coppola and The cell (2000), which is a scientific and psychological fiction by Tarsem Singh, Eiko Ishioka produced impressive spatial effects by creating eccentric costume. It implies that eccentric costume also could lead to a contribution in films. Hence, Shiro would focus on creating unique costumes, which fit with perceptual experiences such as films. Particularly, he would emphasize forms and textures in order to represent symbolic costumes in well visualization.
