Interactive Light Installation, 2017

I was once spotted by a security guard who was using a flashlight outdoors at night. I felt that this was an intrusion upon my freedom and that it exposed me to a very conspicuous light source in public. I brought this feeling of abruptness into the exhibition by shining spotlights on the viewers, turning them into works on display.

Several flashlights that could detect human bodies were hung in the darkened exhibition space to detect human bodies. The viewers became protagonists when they were exposed to light.

The ‘arms’ of these flashlights are assembled with two perpendicular horizontal steering engines. It captured human signals by Kinect and followed the viewers constantly.
