Beam me up, Scotty! Artist Makoto Tojiki transforms a 3D LED grid into a pixel person reminiscent of the Star Trek teleportation machine. Titled “Man With No Shadow,” Tojiki’s LED man was exhibited at the Salone Satellite event in Italy in 2009. Here’s a poetic quote from Tojiki about his work - “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.’” More from Tojiki coming in future posts.
