Distant Light by Sang Jun



Distant Light, a lighting space installation created by Sang Jun.
"Although light makes everything visible, light itself is not usually noticed because we see things reflected against it. When I look toward the sun, normally, everything in my vision turns into visible and invisible. This is nature's rule: an object is only visible when light reflects it. Under a light source, every subject is illuminated in human perception because light amplifies our vision. Ultimately, relationship between light and shadow becomes the threshold of human perception. Sheer curtain walls move by wind current in a dark room filled with haze. The lights comes from somewhere behind curtain walls, and the light makes the movement of curtains visible. An ambivalent feelings in a dark and hazed space drives the viewers self motivation to discover." - Sang Jun. See more;
