LED art

LED art is a form of light art constructed from light-emitting diodes. LEDs (light emitting diodes) are very inexpensive to purchase and have become a new way to make street art. Many artists who use LEDs are guerrilla artists, incorporating LEDs to produce temporary pieces in public places. LEDs may be used in installation art, sculptural pieces and interactive artworks.

Born in Miyzaki, Japan, Makoto Tojiki went to Kinki University to be an industrial design engineer. After school, he went into designing home appliances. This was until he became an artist full time in 2003. I think he made a wise decision! Above features his creation "Man with No Shadow"!

Featured above is "Hopes and Dreams". Makoto Tojiki shares that his creative process involves, “breaking down the light and the shadow to capture the essence of their symbiosis resulting in fleeting images that are as ephemeral and enigmatic as shadow itself.”

Makoto Tojiki working on his "Hopes and Dreams" installation. The "No Shadow" concept came from Tojiki's fascination with light and manipulating it to create other-worldly images that are simple but captivating!

“Sometimes an object appears differently from how we remember it to be. Yet, this is often not because the object itself has changed, but it is caused by a change in the observer’s perspective. This change may also be related to, and expressive of, the object’s essence. My interest is in exploring, ‘When, and for what reason, does a person’s perception of an object change?’ Through my work, I seek to stimulate how people see objects. By extracting its essence, I seek to express that which lies at an object’s core.” —Makoto Tojiki

With the illumination of light strands, Makoto Tojiki is able to convey action even though the piece is still. It almost tells a story."Horse with No Shadow" is made up of over a thousand LED light strands!
