CRAFTSCAPE 2

 

 

By painting Urushi, a type of lacquer, any rough texture of the wood metamorphoses into an abstract and highly reflective black smooth surface. This installation uses a spherical object coated with Urushi as a reflective surface for the light. The light source moves like a pendulum and creates images of a distorted space with time. The reflection is dynamic; a rectangle at one point, it changes into a spherical shape like that of the moon in the next moment.
