Blink - Two Rooms and an Island

Installations by Juria Yoshikawa, Soundscapes by AldoManutio Abruzzo.

Look at the light in your room or the sun outside. Then close your eyes. It's dark... but notice an "echo" of lights and shapes that slowly fades. Within the blink of your eyes are lights, silhouettes and spaces in the dark. Time seems to stop like a photograph. Open them and it begins again. Light and dark, two parallel realities as normal as a blink. This installation is about this fundamental perception shift. I have created three installations spread across two rooms and an island to experiment with the richness of seeing in virtual reality. But to see you must explore both in art making and viewing. The things we take for granted can change with the blink of our eyes.
