CONCEPTEN02 is a light sculpture exploring lines and circles.

EN02 emerges as a mesmerizing exploration of form and motion, weaving together lines and circles into a dynamic light sculpture. Rooted in the symbolic richness of the Japanese homophone "EN," signifying  ‘Circle’ (円), ‘Connection’ (縁), and ‘Feast’ (宴) in Chinese characters, the installation transcends traditional boundaries to offer viewers a transformative sensory experience.

Symbolism of "EN"
Guided by the multifaceted meanings of "EN," the installation embodies themes of unity, continuity, and celebration. These symbolic underpinnings inform every aspect of EN02, from its shape and structure to its luminous patterns and public interaction, inviting participants to engage in a collective exploration of form and meaning.

Exploration of Form
EN02 invites viewers to contemplate the interplay between lines and circles, exploring the tension and harmony between these elemental forms. Through its dynamic light patterns and spatial arrangements, the installation encourages viewers to immerse themselves in a visual feast of shapes and shadows.

Lines and Circles
At its core, EN02 is a study in contrasts, juxtaposing the linear and the circular to create a visually striking composition. The interplay between straight lines and curved arcs evokes a sense of movement and dynamism, inviting viewers to trace the contours of the installation with their gaze.

EN02 stands as a testament to the power of art to transcend language and culture, inviting viewers on a journey of exploration and discovery. By harnessing the symbolic richness of "EN" and the dynamic interplay of lines and circles, the installation sparks dialogue, fosters connections, and celebrates the inherent beauty of form and motion.
