Japanese artist and designer Makoto Tojiki innovatively uses light as his primary medium of expression. In his latest exhibition, No Shadow, Tojiki manipulates thousands of small hanging lights to create 3D images of a man and animals. I’m pretty amazed by how the artist is able to “see” the image while meticulously placing the lights. Makoto’s creativity doesn’t stop at light production; he is also involved in jewelry making and furniture design. Check out his diverse portfolio!
“An object is seen when our eyes capture light that is reflected from the object. If we extract just the light that is reflected from “something,” are we still in the presence of that “something”?
Using contours of light, I try to express this “something.””
