Concrete Light

Concrete with acrylic lenses and LED lights, 2017, 13"w x 13"h x 14"d

The inspiration was from a thing in our studio restroom—an extrusion on the concrete floor. It catches my eye every time I sit on the toilet. I can’t stop thinking about it. The more I think about it, the more I like it. It looks like a stone growing up from the ground. I strongly feel it has a life. Therefore, I started to think of giving my work a life so that I can inject emotion into it easier. Then I tried to introduce some biological features into my work, such as breathing and growth, and now explore what will happen with it after giving concrete a life.
