Light Barrier

Kimchi and Chips


Concave Mirrors, Projection, Haze
6×2×2.7m, 5minutes

Light Barrier is a Media Art Installation produced as one of the series, ‘Drawing in the Air’ that is Kimchi and Chips’ inspirational theme. In this project, the artists tried to make drawings being placed in between material and immaterial. Controlling lights being reflected against hundreds of convex mirrors precisely in the smoke, Light Barrier draws illusive digital graphic objects in a physical space.
