time sculpture

Inspired by the icicle formed as time goes by, a new lighting unit is produced by examining the lighting technique of the chōchin, one of the traditional Japanese lanterns. When you reach out toward the bottom end of the inverted cone with lighting gradation, you can scoop up in your hand droplets of light freshly dripped from the light source in the light unit. This is a piece of interactive lighting equipment that enables you to catch the light.
