Born in 1982, Japan. Experimental filmmaker and pilgrim in search of never-before-seen images and new perceptual experience. He started making moving image with 16mm film in 2006. Main theme is to lead the audience's perception to change naturally and sometimes drastically bycoming and going across borders between image and non-image, sound and image with extracting film's materiality. The works have been screened at many film festivals, including International Film Festival Rotterdam. Recently, He performs to transform optical phenomenon into moving image.

Images do not live in this world but in the eye of the beholder. Perception is just the result of the human vision failures, and the way we educate our look. Shinkan Tamaki films are propelled from this idea as if from a trampoline, sometimes helped in their drive by the properties of the photochemical support, sometimes by the basic principles of light and color. High contrast, the distinction between figure and ground, folds, shadows, negative and positive image, traces and marks left by analog processes: these are some of Tamaki’s resources -a member and co-founder of the Japanese group [ + ]- in his efforts to explore the latitude of film contrast thoroughly, and try the possibilities of the light spectrum. A stroll that breaks into a thousand pieces, the body of an animal that becomes an abstract choreography or a boat trip where sky and sea are exchanged and denatured are just some of the means to un-educate the eye that the films by Shinkan Tamaki provide, where everything can become nothing, and nothing the entire universe.
