Developing an idea to create work in the form of a scroll or screens.
Kakejiku — ‘the hanging scrolls you see in japanese tea rooms, temples or traditional guest houses.’
They have a particular structure – allowing a top and bottom to roll the central image, a simple bottom and top rod and satrap to hang the work. The framing is precisely defined as well:
sometimes the borders are organised into columns and lintels.
This film has a lovely visual description of the craft of making the screens. Is it possible to do this with photographs……?
