Bulb tree” is mainly constructed with about 100 bulbs filled with liquid bleach (The bulbs are not electrically functioning). The chemical water then dissolves the connecting part between the glass and the socket made with aluminum. This makes the bulbs fall at unexpected moments and crash completely, creating a spontaneously changing scene on the floor. The whole process of chemical function displays an accelerated degradation effect, which represents the simultaneity of destruction and creation in nature. The bulbs seem to imitate falling fruits from a living tree in the exhibition space.     

The “Bulb Tree” was created in 2014, which was the year when the production of the filament-bulb had ceased due to the invention of LED-technology. As the filament-bulb, one of the most important inventions, once useful but had become a relic of the past, the “bulb tree” experiences seasons of change. It also suggests a clear manifestation of new cultural circumstances.

Fragments scattered on the black wooden board display a sort of explosive image. This piece is designed to be a part of the work, “Bulb Tree”. The chemical water in the bulbs dissolves the part that connects the glass and the socket and produces viscid sediments in the glass bulbs. This chemical byproduct is a byproduct of time.

Eventually the bulbs burst and scatter the sediments and glass pieces on the board. When all fragments are collected on the board, they are collectively an image of passage of time. It also evokes the image of the evolutionary stages of a star’s life and death.

This cleaning liquid dissolves each connection part between the glass and the socket in bulbs by degrees.

This work is planned to make destruction and creation in the same space and it makes also a short accidental encounter with a visitor. Each object is mainly constructed from about 100 bulbs filled with liquid bleach not electrically. This chemical water dissolves each connection part between the glass and the socket in bulbs by degrees. In the meantime, a bulb falls at unexpected moments and crashes, makes a changeable installation with fragments and liquid on the floor. It is motivated when I got an impression at the moment that the first bulb fell in my studio. It’s like a falling fruit from a living tree and led me to a series of thought. It is one of motivations that I am encouraged to do with this fragile material.
