Glow Wormの呼応


Glow worms found in New Zealand and a few other parts of the southern hemisphere, glow with a blue light that sticks to the ceilings of caves and attracts insects to become entangled in their mucus. Their luminescence is sometimes compared to the starry sky on earth, as they emit light all at once from external stimuli such as sound and vibration. This work pays homage to these glow worms. Assuming that each individual is able to synchronize with each other by means of neurotransmitters, the figure of the individual fireflies responding to each other in the vicinity is incorporated into the work by means of suspended LEDs and control devices. The light flickers when people get close to each other or emit sounds.
