The creative hands and the watchful eyes along with the intricate system of machinery — all dance in an elegant artistic fashion.

 “A machine – the simplest rotating devices of mechanical nature – come apart and expands on black background of Koyama’s canvases while parts of human body gently and with care hold, elevate or support the running parts. The Mechanism unfolds in human’s hands overcoming its utilitarian or even material nature and while generating aesthetical strength goes beyond the material. As a particular visualization of METAMACHINE Koyama’s devices transform and regenerate themselves into medium with access to supernatural dimension, as a mega-key to the parallel world where machine have same rights for beauty and sublime as human body in ours.”
