 CONCEPT 

This is a project intangible #form to create a physical object/notion in space using a laser optical axis that has no physical properties. When we see a structure, we instantly try to calculate and understand the curves and physical rules of the structure. This is reflexive, in other words a universal, wild sensation. When this sensation works, the behavior of space and structures influences the criteria for judging whether they are organic/inorganic, the notion such as biological consciousness and soul is generated to the result of judging. I create experiences, spaces, and structures that have both real and intangible qualities, as a means of touching human cognition and imagery, and as an opportunity for viewers to get a bird's eye view of their abilities.

All laser modules are controlled by an original application(created with openframeworks), while the computations that form the structure are done in real time. Objects such as spheres and cubes are floating in the virtual three-dimensional space in the application, and the behavior of the laser is calculated by using the primitive data of the objects. The main purpose is to explore the essential expression, but in the future, in addition to the data possessed by the structure, I would like to incorporate the exploration of human color vision, and the data of the wavelength of light into my work.
