distant light

distant light, interactive media installation

What we see all around us is the reflection against the light, and we perceive dimension and distance from shadow and perspective. Therefore, the world is a three-dimensional scope in human vision. However, this natural physics of visibility becomes a dilemma when it collides with one’s visual perception in certain conditions. Through my exploration of human optics and visual perception, I designed an interactive installation ‘distant light (2013)’. We receive a qualitative light reflection, rather than a quantitative illumination, experience that lit our visual perception. When I look toward the sun, normally, everything in my vision turns into visible and invisible. Under a light source, every subject is illuminated in human perception because light amplifies our vision, and the relationship between light and shadow becomes the threshold of human perception.
