Myrkviðr consists of an illuminated aluminum ring suspended by countless pieces of fishing line. The light from the ring reflects off of the fishing line in an infinite variety of ways depending on the viewer’s position. The artwork has no intended meaning, and is instead meant to be experienced in an immediate, purely visual way.
Japanese artist Yasuhiro Chida studied architecture in Tokyo and creates large installations that have been primarily been shown in Europe and Asia since 2015. A recurring theme in Hiro’s work is the effect of light on our physical perception of our environment. He considers light to be the basis of all art.
