Sado receives radio signals from Russia, the Korean Peninsula, and China. As a child growing up in Ryotsu, Yoshida would listen to—what was to him—the undecipherable foreign noise coming through the radio that would run his imagination wild. This installation uses sound and light to signify the existence of a hidden, inexpressible, and richly layered world, and a form of communication that exceeds time and distance.
Born in Sado, Niigata Prefecture.
Sado Island Galaxy Art Festival Director of Communications. Starting in 1996, Yoshida trained as an assistant under Naohiro Ukawa in San Francisco, after which he returned to Japan and lived in Okinawa until 2003. Yoshida’s works include a cave installation in the then city of Ishikawa (now Uruma) located on the main island of Okinawa and an installation at the 2016 Sado Island Galaxy Art Festival.
