A machine— the simplest rotating devices of mechanical nature— comes apart and expands on the black background of Koyama’s canvases while the human body gently holds the running parts. The Mechanism unfolds in the human’s hands, overcoming its utilitarian or even material nature and generating strength which goes beyond the material. As a particular visualization of Metamachine, Koyama’s devices transform and regenerate themselves with access to supernatural dimensions, as a key to a parallel world where machines have the same beauty as human bodies.
