Array — YCAM Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media
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.
