You may remember doing this as a child on New Year’s Eve: drawing or writing in the air, using a sparkler. The ‘drawing’ is caused by something called a light aftermath, or better yet, the sparkler’s trail effect.
Japanese artist Yasuhiro Chida (1977) studied architecture in Tokyo and creates large installations in the public space or natural landscapes that have been shown in Europe since 2015. The most important theme in Chida’s work is the physical, sensory perception of our environment, and the way in which we respond to changes. In 2017-2018 Chida participated in Amsterdam Light Festival with 'Brocken 6A', a large, mysterious metal box in which visitors could witness a special light effect.
