Milky Ways - Breath
In her ongoing series of figurative sculptures titled Milky Ways - Breath,Japanese artist Mihoko Ogaki explores ideas of life, death, and rebirth. The artist has combined the night sky with the body in these sculptures. The dead or dying human forms are constructed from Fibre-reinforced plastic and embedded with bright LEDs that when lit project fields of light resembling stars in the surrounding space. The light shines out through thousands of tiny holes and illuminates the walls surrounding the sculpture but when they are placed in bright room, the bodies appear to be suffering and dying.
