Phosphorescent Glass Sculptures Illuminate in Presence of People – Design You Trust

Phosphorescent Glass Sculptures Illuminate in Presence of People

In an ongoing series of conceptual artworks, Japanese artist Rui Sasaki creates stunning phosphorescent glass sculptures to ‘record and contain sunshine’.

“I do not get much sunshine in Toyama. Living in a cloudy environment helped me realize how vital sunshine is for me both mentally and physically. How can I bottle and release sunshine in glass? How can I visualize sunshine? Can I transfer sunshine from here to there?

Each thin phosphorescent glass bubble is charged by a solarium light when nobody is in the space where the work is installed. When someone enters, the solarium light switches off and the thin phosphorescent glass bubbles illuminate the space. The illumination slowly diminishes over time, and the space slowly grows darker and darker the longer a viewer stays there,” she said.
