Size varies according to each installation

Viimeinen Sammuttaa Valot is a series of site specific light installations and individual sculptures, that are assembled from hundreds of gas pipes. The pipes have been collected around empty houses at redevelopment sites across Seoul. The pipes until recently served as the “veins” of the neighbourhood, providing the gas that heated all the houses. In our installation pieces the pipes are repurposed, fitted with small lights at the openings. In this reincarnation they only carry the memories of an existence already passed.
