Yasutoki Kariya’s Asobi installation.

An installation designed by Musashino Art University student, Yasutoki Kariya, sees the transference of light along a series of delicate bulbs. The design reinterpret’s Newton’s Cradle (swinging steel spheres tapped along by gravity) as eleven motion-controlled bulbs passing light from one to the next in a gentle swaying movement. The effect is both mesmerising and beautiful.

Entitled ‘Asobi’, the installation was nominated for the 2012 Mitsubishi Chemical’s Junior Designer Award, recognising creativity in the graduating class of design students in Japan.
