Makoto Tanijiri, meets the challenge to make a space for light, a tangible experience for an intangible element, and produces an empty space filled with the experience of light. The installation incorporates space and state-of-the-art LED technology in order to exceed the boundaries of materiality and produce a feeling, a pure experience for the senses.
According to the designer:
““What is light?” This was the first question for designing the Toshiba LED installation. We never see its form or feel the texture, so I was thinking about light itself and not a space of it. At the end, I noticed light was something to feel and not to be explained with words. For an installation place, I proposed space people could feel just light. At the space, there is nothing except light, so that, it was emphasized and people could face to light only. Nothing was the key for the project. Also, to create light as if it was natural, smog is using as an object people cannot control, to concrete its form and color. We hope the space would be a place where people could feel and reidentify the original beauty of light with their own memories of beautiful scenes in light.”
