Interactive light installation, 2018 -

"SELFVERSE" is a viewer-participatory and interactive light installation work.
The viewer uses a flashlight to shine the light on reflective materials (aurora film, hologram sheets, mirror balls, etc.)  installed in the exhibition space, and the illusionary reflections are projected onto the walls and ceiling. This work invites the viewer to interact, contemplate, and investigate the process of visual creation. 

Viewers will be able to take the reflective materials and freely reconfigure them to create their own unique reflections while enjoying various experiments. Viewers will be pleasantly surprised by the beautiful scene that suddenly appears, as if by magic.  Collaborating with other viewers, they will be able to integrate and expand their own worlds. This creative world of unlimited possibilities, created by each viewer, is called "SELFVERSE".

This analogue interaction, without any programming or digital equipment, will result in a one-of-a-kind creation by the viewers.

This open-ended, unlimited, simple, fun and playful experiential installation will ignite the imagination of people of all ages. The artist believes that this light-experimentation as an art medium provides an opportunity to enhance self-expansion powered by one's own creativity.


I have consistently attempted to express the unknown possibilities that we as humans all possess and the wonder of our individual existence through my artworks. In this work "SELFVERSE," the viewers are not as static bystanders but an active force, experiencing with joy the sparkle of his or her own potentiality.

We are now entering a new era. Having experienced many hardships and changes in recent years, I believe that we are called upon to evolve spiritually for a new era. It is my hope that this work, SELFVERSE, will contribute to awakening people for the future. We will use our creativity and potential to create a new era.
