Retina wave

This work consists of a skipping rope with a built-in generator powered by ultra-high efficiency electromagnetic induction: when you jump, electricity is generated and the entire rope lights up. The afterimage of the light remains on your retina for one-tenth of a second: the person jumping rope becomes part of the nightscape. <D.W>

超高効率の電磁誘導による発電ユニットを内蔵。跳ぶことで発電し、ロープ全体が光る縄跳び。網膜に1/10 秒間、光の残像が残り、遊ぶ人が夜景の一部になる。

The gallery is filled with water in order to make artificial rain and fog. The stroboscopic afterglow effect makes it appear as if particles of light are floating throughout the entire gallery. In the center is a path that  disappears into the water, allowing visitors to experience walking through these floating light particles. Thanks to the lighting, the fog takes on a more material appearance, rendering the border between phenomenon and material, and light and darkness, more ambiguous. <D.W>

ギャラリー内に水をはり、人工の雨、霧、を作る。ストロボライトの残像効果により、会場内全体に光の粒が浮遊して見られる。中央には水の中に消えていくように道が設置され、鑑賞者は宙に浮く光の粒の中を歩く体験をする。霧は照明により物質化され、現象と物質、光と闇の境界を曖昧にする。

Polyhedral space

This work derives from the models that were used to test out the works Myrkviðr and Analemma. The space occupied by the work is visualized through using threads woven in a polygonal manner, with the aim of creating the lowest possible density. (T.N.)

MyrkviðrやAnalemmaの実験の為の模型から作品化。立体的に編まれた糸が限りなく疎な状態を作り、空間を可視化する。

存在の限界、認識の限界、空間の知覚可能性を探る。
