Illusion Hole by UxU Studio, courtesy of Light Art Collection is the No.6 artwork of the ‘Use Your Illusion’ series. Since UxU studio began to create the series of artworks using meteor lights, they always have been curious how the visitor experiences the flowing light.
According to UxU, light is not a substance, but can be transformed to certain things to produce meaning. Through the geometrically arranged pattern, it seems that the water formed by light is flowing into an unknown black hole. When we watch the flowing light, do we really care about the existence of the river underneath? Or, do we treat the false as true, through which the real becomes false.
Artist | UxU Studio
UxU Studio, founded in 2011 by Kuan-Hung Chen and Ying-Chu Chen, is a Taiwanese collective of architects, designers, and artists. Their experimental, multidisciplinary approach leads to surprising (light) objects,which are often made of simple and ordinary materials. Sometimes, this results in big installations to wander in or just to quietly sit in. Other times, they enlarge or reduce a recognisable thing or image to a surrealistic size.
