Analemma 2019

In complete darkness. One white thin light line is projected and it moves up continuously. White polyester threads weaved randomly whole space in the space. It works as a 3D screen. The audience will be surrounded by several thousand of tiny light points which moving up. Since the threads are weaved at a random angle, each light points seem moving at a different velocity.

I believe that space itself has beauty. However, space is not visible and touchable. Light is the purest material which can change space tangible. When density becomes limitlessly low and reached to the limit that people can feel some kind of existence, the material loses it’s materiality and remains only as a quality and space. In this work, the audience will feel as they were in the water.

The equipment with the light source will be hanged from the ceiling in the center of the perfect darkroom. The equipment consists of a super bright LED, heat sink and thin water pipe. Visitors will enter a dark room and see a water drops dripping from the center of the room. The water droplet works as a lens in which the refractive index keeps changing and draws patterns on the floor, walls, and ceiling. Patterns keep changing slightly, and the identical pattern will never emerge. Infinite light patterns are projected by two physics, the surface tension of water and gravity. Water droplets also work as a prism, and rainbows appear on the walls. The sound of water droplets falling also makes you aware of “MA”. The audience could reconsider the structure and meaning of this world by the simplest relationship of time, space, and light which are the fundamental element of this universe.

In complete darkness. One light attached to an aluminum ring, 1.2 meters in diameter, hunged from the ceiling is rotating slowly at the center of the space. Transparent nylon threads weaved whole space in the room reflect the light. You will be surrounded by several thousand of tiny light points moving up in the space like a natural phenomenon “Diamond dust”.
