Just saw that Hiroshi Sambuichi won the 2018 “Daylight Award.”  Ok, somewhat odd sounding award to win, natch, but his work is a beaut and does indeed do some lovely — and quite stunning — things with light and views.  I spoke of his building that I visited on Naoshima Island here, indeed making note of the qualities of light that were present.

Every picture above makes me want to visit and explore each of the buildings in detail.  The angled frames crossing a path with light at the end of a dark corridor?  What is it?  Where does it lead?  I can feel the experience of the space just from the photo.  Or feel the serenity of the setting sun, reflecting off the perfectly smooth pool of water at the edge of the forever-going overhang that frames a riveting horizontal slice of the world.  Or that cistern!  The old and worn and rugged brick in contrast with the smooth and vibrant wood, punctuated by the flash of green, the moss that brings life in the shafts of light, heightened even further by the glass block that catches and makes physical the rays of sun.  Sign.  Me.  Up!

Wonderful work.  All noted for future travels.

Hiroshi Sambuichi, laureate of the 2018 The Daylight Award.

One of the strong elements in Mulan is the mighty score, composed by the late Jerry Goldsmith.  And no part is more powerful than the music that plays during Mulan’s choice, a glorious mix of orchestral sweep morphing (unexpectedly) into a dynamic mix of synth and percussion, perfectly timed with the action on screen.  It’s glorious.

(When I bought the score, I was seriously frustrated that this piece wasn’t included (instead using an alternate version).  As soon as I had my hands on the VHS, I sent the audio to my computer to capture the rightful piece.  Now, in this our years of YouTube, it’s only a quick search away…)
