A miasmic cloud of light forms and reforms as a low hum drones. All aspects, color, shape, sound and timing are a response to the perfect randomness detected by the Geiger counter, creating an aurora borealis out of decay.

The first two photos are light-installations by Lee Eunyeol. The moment I saw them, I thought of a natural phenomenon that occurs on the beach of the Maldives at night.
“According to marine biologist Jorge Ribas, the glowing is caused by a massive red tide, or algae bloom, of bioluminescent phytoplankton called Lingulodinium polyedrum. The microorganisms emit light in response to stress, such as when a wave crashes into the shore, a surfboard slashes through the surf, or a kayaker’s paddle splashes the water. The result is a wickedly cool glowing ocean.”
The photos were taken by Will Ho
Kengo’s choice of material for his work is influenced by daily life in Japan. The hula-hoops, laces, chains, threads, mirrors and other ready-made articles he uses in his pieces are all common sights. He plays around with such ordinary objects and assembles them into two and three-dimensional creations, installations and videos. Since moving to Berlin in 2010 he has been choosing old furniture and tableware which contain historical meaning, as well as natural materials such as twigs and precious stones. He has in mind acentric images such as micro-organisms which infinitely reproduce through repeated cell division.
