The Cool Hunter - Makoto Tojiki - Light Sculptures

Japanese artist Makoto Tojikil is fascinated by light. He uses it in ways that create amazing illusions and out-of-this-world experiences in a subtle, inquisitive way.

But what we love most is the way his No Shadow pieces – large animal and human sculptures made of strands of light - evoke a sense of playfulness, awe, possibility and wonder. We find ourselves unable to stop staring, unwilling to leave the area of influence of the magical, somehow celestial beings and creatures.

Tojiki was born in 1975 in Miyzaki, Japan, and graduated from Kinki University in 1998 as an industrial design engineer. After a stint designing home appliances, he launched his artistic career full-time in 2003. Of the No Shadow pieces, he says “An object is seen when our eyes capture light that is reflected from the object. If we extract just the light that is reflected from ‘something,’ are we still in the presence of that ‘something?’ Using contours of light, I try to express this ‘something.’” We envision all sorts of opportunities for brands to use this type of sculpture at events, launches, stores, showrooms… - Tuija Seipell.

Happy Vernal Equinox 2012!

Happy First Day of Spring, which arrives unusually early this year.

Unless you’re an astronomer, kayaker or farmer, you might have missed that it’s the spring equinox. The duration of day and night are roughly the same, the magic moment occurring worldwide on 0514 Universal Time, March 20, 2012 (That’s 9:14 p.m. March 19th, here on the Pacific coast). From here on out, the days will be longer and the nights shorter in the Northern Hemisphere -- at least until the Earth’s wobble peaks its annual cycle on the summer solstice, June 20. Seem early this year? It is. Due to the counterintuitive nature of the Earth’s orbital dynamics and wobble, this is really the earliest arrival of spring since 1896. Climate-change deniers and other wackadoodles take note: the early chronological spring it unrelated to global warming and the unseasonably warm winter, which is occurring because of atmospheric carbon pollution and other human activity. For you space and math nerds, here is more:
