far light • near memory


Photons in memory recalled by the light of distant scenery.
The memory of people and the future that has not been to see are also light.

The inner objects of a globe fluorescent light bulb are hollowed out and replaced with a unique electronic circuit consisting of a proximity sensor, LEDs, a geared motor, and a control circuit. In standby mode, inner LEDs flicker as if breathing, and when the viewer brings their hand close to the artwork, LEDs beat faster and the artwork rolls autonomously. A built-in battery makes viewing without the need for an external power source.
