Liquid Sunshine: fascinating glow-in-the-dark glass sculptures by Rui Sasaki

In her series Liquid Sunshine, Japanese artist Rui Sasaki creates beautiful and delicate phosphorescent glass sculptures that evoke the “exploration of discovery of subtle intimacy through the interplay between body and surroundings”.

The question behind this work is: how can I visualize sunshine in glass? I am interested in using phosphorescent types of glass to record and contain sunshine because I do not get much sunshine in Toyama. Living in a cloudy environment helped me realize how vital sunshine is for me both mentally and physically. This artwork was exhibited at Gallery S12 in Bergen, Norway where the weather is almost as cloudy and rainy as Toyama. Each thin phosphorescent glass bubble is charged by a solarium light when nobody is in the space where the work is installed. When someone enters, the solarium light switches off and the thin phosphorescent glass bubbles illuminate the space. The illumination slowly diminishes over time, and the space slowly grows darker and darker the longer a viewer stays there.
