What would happen if we were to remove the lights, a proof of civilisation, from the crossing that is symbolic of the city?
The "Crossing Ray" series is an experimental attempt to get close to the essence of the city by taking the light emitted by buildings from intersections to the limit and projecting its shape.
As a method of stealing light, I mainly took the lights from crossings in four directions of Tokyo, compared the four cuts with one another to merge them into a single piece. The motivation of this work comes from the experience of losing light to the city due to a planned power outage associated with the 3.11 nuclear power plant accident.
It has been hundred plus years since electric power has been put to practical use. Is the issue of power generation technology a question that should now be reconsidered?
