Hitomi Sato Invites Spectators to Take a Shimmering Walk Through Light

“Keep looking for a while, and the inner memories of our body are recalled.”

Tokyo artist Hitomi Sato’s latest installation, ‘Sense of Field,’ is a multi-sensory experience that incorporates the haptic as well as the visual elements of light; the aesthetically blissful art piece consists of thousands of transparent bristles which extend from parallel walls, leaving a tight space for the spectator to maneuver. As they move between the two walls, art gallery patrons move the bristles from side to side, causing a shimmering dance of light in their wake. The resultant reflective flashes depend entirely on the angle at which they are perceived, rendering every experience of the artwork unique.

According to the artist:

Keep looking for a while, and the inner memories of our body are recalled. The feel of winds, clashing sounds, the smells of something. The inner world and the outer nature resonate each other.
It is not only a visual experience but also a sense of touch. You will get the total sense experience, temporal, spatial, and metamorphose.
