Interactive sculpture which emits light when you place a egg on the hand
Ideas for this "hand, on" piece is inspired by a Japanese 'animistic' view of life as well as one of my pieces, "Oshibe". Animism, which is the belief that everything has a spirit including everyday objects such as trees and plants; it is a belief in Japan that has existed since ancient times. Particularly on this project I am interested in theory of Reiki and Ki, these theories state that the hands can be used to create special powers for healing our body. Within the project i have used light to communicate the synonyms about birth and to celebrate life. I have tried to represent these mythic principles within in this work using varying textures and light.
