On the event of the Imadate Artwork Truthful within the prefecture of Echizen in Japan, JM Blay was invited to create an audiovisual piece for an artwork exhibition for the Echizen Museum. The exhibition was about Japanese handmade paper as at all times, however this yr was the primary time they have been inviting artists from completely different inventive disciplines to indicate their view of Washi utilizing their very own visible narratives.

The piece JM created, is a free interpretation of the traditional handcrafted course of that’s Washi. He approached this as an experimental challenge, discovering a story within the journey that’s the strategy of paper making. JM abridged the steps he thought have been extra fascinating to indicate, specializing in the pure supplies and the paper moderately than the human motion. 
The way in which of constructing this paper is sort of a ceremony, nearly non secular, and extra associated to the gods than people. This imaginative and prescient led him to create an oneiric piece in regards to the making of Washi. 

Flying branches interacting with one another, a drop of water beginning the method, boiling strips of bark, an rising sheet of paper from the water… That is the narrative JM used on this piece. Nearly like small interlocked tales in regards to the supplies that give them the significance they’ve.
