power of one #empty explores how a line and bright light can create and define space. It aims to recreate emptiness in 2-dimensions. To our eyes, the cube is always there as a solid shape that looks to be 3-dimensional, but it is in a constant state of creation. The projection and the cube drawn by the laser are linked and programmed to display simultaneously. The intangible cube that is constantly being created by the laser mimics the repeating cycle of life.
Light helps define the space around us as it bounces off of the objects we see. In power of one #empty, Fujimoto gives us the chance to observe our environment and structure of light, asking us to focus on how we experience the world using the physical properties of light.
