The Kusho series consists of twenty-three large-scale color photographs that represent the interplay of black ink and water, both in midair and on white surfaces. The phenomenon that [Shinichi] Maruyama captures–two liquids colliding the millisceond before they merge into gray–is the result of various actions and devices. The resultant images literally deconstruct the material elements of ink drawing and calligraphy, allowing us to see in extraordinary detail chemical and physical processes invisible to the naked eye.

    spontaneous, whimsical even, and yet the technological sophistication of the technique must be very refined… it is rather interesting.
