Aoi Yamaguchi

Aoi Yamaguchi | TEDxTokyo 2014

At some point in history, the Japanese stopped writing vertically. Nowadays, it may be rare to find people who write by hand at all. Aoi Yamaguchi is a San Francisco-based calligrapher who aims to liberate the calligraphic arts from the static page. She puts on live calligraphy performances in collaboration with dancers and fashion models, giving three-dimensional expression to writing’s sense of time, passion, emotion, stillness and motion. Yamaguchi reminds us what it is like to write. The letters pulse with a beating rhythm and the written word lives on.
