‘light of thought’ by kouichi okamoto of kyouei

 

 

kouichi okamoto of kyouei design: light of thoughtlibby sellers gallery, londonon from the 10th january through to 25th january, 2013

 

to be presented at libby sellers gallery as part of the mark-ing exhibition is ‘light of thought’ by kyouei design‘s kouichi okamoto. the work is best described as the contours of a brain formed with tens of thousands of melted solder drops connected with a soldering iron, where the structure was then enclosed in a resin panel. the LED perched in the centre of the mass of lines is activated through the positive electrodes of the left brain and the negative electrodes of the right brain, which then flow into the bulb and cause it illuminate. the work is made up of only basic parts required to turn on an LED – a battery, an electrical cord, solder, resistance, and LED.

 

mark-ing is an exhibition that explores the subtle differences and parallels between british and japanese culture through presenting new work by contemporary designers alongside ordinary objects that have influenced their careers. these objects highlight social, educational differences, cultural differences and shared ideas while also examining the global relationships that connect contemporary designers across the world.

 

within the exhibition an example of contemporary work by each of the 16 designers (8 UK, 8 japanese) is presented alongside a ‘fragment’ of their consciousness in the shape of a single object; through this the exhibition examines the designers’ inspiration, and the connections between their respective social backgrounds.
