It was coincidental that I was having withdrawals this week thinking about last year’s trip to Taiwan. When I came across this post on [Colossal] I knew that it was serendipitous. Created for this year’s Taiwan Lantern Festival, artist Ling-Li Tseng crafted an installation that is “a whispering between human(s) and nature.” Located in the forest of Houli, “The Search of the Glow” is a wooden sphere dressed in LED lights. Instead of being your standard spherical shape, the pieces are a series of connected ovals.
At night, the sphere lights up the space of the forest, while in the daytime mist or fog, it appears to give a more subtle glow.
