Array is a field of columns set in the courtyard of the Chuya Nakahara Memorial Museum in Southern Japan.
The columns create a field of light and sound, gently shifting in response to the viewers’ movements via a hidden network of ultrasonic sensors. Each column is lit by a pure, shimmering white light. This forest of light light calls you in, and its response to movement invites to explore. Inside the grid lives a spirit, in the form of a single pure red light. This spirit is timid but often playful, revealing itself boldly then disappearing.
Commissioned by Yamaguchi Center for Arts And Media (YCAM) for their fifth anniversary, as part of the Yuda Art Project.
