Local Lights / 地域の光 interactive light installation, infra red light, handmade Japanese mino washi paper, dimension variable, 2016 / インタラクティブ・ライト・インスタレーション、赤外線ライト、手漉美濃和紙、サイズ可変、2016

In the installation the visitors most memorable places in Yamaguchi Prefecture were collected. After writing down the coordinates, infra red (IR) lights are placed under the map of Akiyoshidai. The IR lights are not visible with human eye, but by using mobile phone camera the content becomes visible. In this way an invisible map of memories is created by the participants.
The cooperative work made by Mari Mäkiö and Tamás Szvet during the AIAV Akiyoshidai International Art Village Artist in residence program in 2016.
