Light is always perceived as a static element, and we want to break that boundary and explore light in a more vivid vision. The project is to use light as a medium of art through motion and refraction that reveals tangible and natural phenomena like “Ebb and flow”, which is to create a recurrent/ rhythmical pattern of coming and going or decline and regrowth through light.
Concept Development & Proposal
The project uses light as an art medium to transform and express the motion of water.
