Birds Fly Around With You..
Masamichi Shimada, Japan
Based on the zoetrope, a machine that preceded cinema, this light sculpture will enchant young and old. A visitor who comes in close proximity will start the machine. The birds light up one by one creating the illusion of flying. As more people move around the artwork, more birds will fly.
Originally a motion designer, Masamichi Shimada has been focused on creating light art for many years. In his installations, Shimada combines light and a range of other materials such as wood, paper, metal, and plastic. He attempts not only to exhibit beautiful images but also to enhance the life of the viewer (Read more here!)
