Enlightenment

Enlightenment is a series of neon light objects in various shapes that bathe the space in strong white neon light. The forms of the objects and the clear light they emit pulls the public into the space towards them, but when one closes in on the fascinating objects, they suddenly go out and stop glowing, leaving the visitor’s curiosity somewhat dissatisfied. When moving away from the objects, they light up again and regain their seductive presence.
