POINT OF CONTACT

SATORU TAMURA

JAPAN

Satoru Tamura has created an oversized electric switch that creates sparks on a brass rod. By the movement of the switch, Point of Contact closes the electrical circuit on and off, resulting in a column of light bulbs that is repeatedly illuminated and obscured.

Tamura sees light as a phenomenon rather than as technology and his aim is to create a pure, self-reflective work without any further meaning.

Point of Contact has won the International Light Art Award 2017, an initiative of the Centre for International Light Art Unna and Innogy Foundation to show works by emerging artists, who will contribute to the development of light art in an innovative and creative way.
