Videos by Yoshi Sodeoka, Music by MYMK
Forays into Clamor by Yoshi Sodeoka are audio reactive videos inspired by MYMK’s ambient music, as a continuation of my collaboration following the 11 video project called Garlands. Made with digital video feedback, the artist spent months coming up with the particular technique that shows how simple black & white lines would be able to create the explosion of organic shapes and infinite amount of colours achieved by blending various hues and opacities of multiple primary colours endlessly, from circles as a beginning point.
Yoshi Sodeoka is an artist based in New York for over two decades, whose work is characterised by his neo-psychedelic aesthetic and exploration of multiple media and platforms. Primarily comprising of video, GIFs and print his practice also simultaneously inhabits the world of fine art, music, publications, and advertising.
Sodeoka’s work has been exhibited internationally, including at Centre Pompidou, Tate Britain, Museum of Modern Art, Deitch Projects, La Gaîté lyrique, Channel 4 Random Acts UK, Baltimore Museum of Art, OneDotZero, Sonar Festival, Transmediale, Whitney Museum of America’s Art Artport. His artworks are in the permanent collections of Museum of the Moving Image as well as the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

He has collaborated with bands like Psychic TV, Tame Impala, Yeasayer, Beck, The Presets, Digitalism, has created art prints for New York Times, Wired Magazine, The Atlantic Magazine, Entertainment Weekly and has produced advertising work for brands such as Apple, Samsung, Nike and Adidas.

…by guest curators invites four curators each year from international digital art galleries, online spaces, biennales and festivals to present online projects and commissions for a period of three months. Each curator is encouraged to showcase artists within or outside of their networks, and to experiment with the platform and how they present projects. This strand of AOS initiates conversations with similar spaces globally and contextualises our work on an international scale.
