19th Art Division Jury Selections
KOYAMA Tomoe [Japan]
When a burning candle is shown on a smart phone, it causes video feedback, giving rise to colors that change with the shimmering flames. By taking advantage of the fluctuation that occurs each time the light of the flame is transmitted to other devices, the artist makes the duration of the shining lights vary. In the darkness, our senses grow increasingly acute as we give ourselves over to the flickering images.
