The Perception is a sculptural light installation placed within a small-enclosed room that transforms.

I built a prototype that has an irregular shape by using foam boards. As you can see the demonstration below, there are many eyes are carved around the installation. These eyes represent the perception of the public. By placing a light inside the installation, the shadow of these eyes will project on the wall around the installation.
The following pictures demonstrate how the audience will experience while going through The installation.
