How to Read Light and Shadow


Emiko Tokai has been captivated by lights and shadows in nature -they change shape at every moment and soon disappear as if they are breathing animals. This transient beauty heightens awareness and sense of presence. She aims to recover human primordial sensitiveness through her projects. Her works approach how lights and shadows breathe or speak a language of movements and gestures.
