Filament is a multimedia installation, inspired by the history of light and nineteenth century’s light bulbs. I  created a new landscape of an electric world – comprised of hundreds of cast porcelain sculptures and video art incorporating 2-channel video projections. I uses the shape of filaments to create animated imagery, and project them onto the porcelain sculptures. The line looks like a drawing that has to come to life.
