WA - Unity experienced in the form of harmony
Inspired by the philosophy deep within the warp and weft of the Japanese loom, our textile artisans share a grounded wisdom about the interconnectedness of nature. Silk threads twining, mimicking the illusion of volume. One that is light, seamless, and almost non-existent. Such as the merging of lonesome clouds on a near rainy day. Each yarn, carefully threaded and tensions adjusted to form a harmonious surface taut within an existing structure. These ephemeral threads connect objects in constant motion, an operation resulting in intricate geometric forms that resembles light rays reflecting off a delicate touch of nature. The fibres that align one’s thoughts to one’s heart, the roots of trees to its stem; the blood vessels to our brain, and the fibres found within the awestruck yellow leaves of the philosophical inducing ginkgo tree during the embrace of the intermittent winds of summer. The flow of this thought, evokes an unforeseen unconscious existential wisdom, followed by an emotion of longing.
An endeavour to remember a certain emotion, that could not be easily grasped through a mere thought. This is the longing of unity, re-alignment, and the sense of interconnectedness. Our artisans endeavour to create installations that instil a profound sense of sweet melancholic reminiscence found within the heart. Combining traditional artisanal values with minimalists contours; cutting edge textures, traditional ropes, and specifically selected fibres in order to create the naturalistic rendition of the interplay of light, treating your visual cornea to a stimuli effect of surprises and grasping your heart with an invisible string of melancholic euphoria. Wakimukudo will design the most eclectic installations for any venue of your choice. We select our fibres on a microscopic level, each a detailed universe full of knots and tangles, depicting the energetic chemistry between fated occurrences, and unforeseen interactions in the universe.
Unseen to the eyes but galaxies of their own, depicting the many energetic alliances and interactions of the beings within this universe, creating an overall cord of unity, positivity, and togetherness. A conjoining cord that depicts a harmonious alliance of the forgotten spaces in-between, depicting beings that continuously cross paths throughout the many lives, the feelings of the strengthening in the forces of positivity and light. Reminding us throughout, that this universe is simple yet unified – separate yet one, that in truth there is never a separation in energies. Many see spiders webs simply as natures’ work of art –  the concept of predator and prey, but to us, a spider web is a moral value and a reminder casted within the air, of the illusion of space, in between objects; that everything is connected to one another through an unseen vestibular network. For each loom design, we endeavour to is to instil a positive sense of harmonious unity.
