When you stand at the entrance to this installation, you can see light coming from the back of the space. When you move inside there is a long, narrow passageway tracing an arc, with a circular space opening behind it. LED lights and a video display are installed, projecting images of the sea and sky of Tokushima. From dawn to sunset, the shapes of the clouds and colors of the sky are changing from moment to moment, and the LED lighting changes along with the color of the sky. The LED lights are installed in the ceiling and in the ground, and as the two light sets change, gradations are created within the space. The curved surfaces of the room reflect the light beautifully and illuminate the entire space. To gradually modulate the light the way the light of the sky changes, I developed a controller with 4096 steps. By blending the media of image and light, the beauty and the experiences within our daily lives are recreated.
