Artist Statement: This is a light in which the lantern in the photo lights up. In addition to the central part of the lantern lighting up, the shadow created by the light illuminates the body of the lantern and the floor, bringing depth to the photo. The structure is simple; behind the photo are a transparent sheet that masks the light, a light-guiding panel, and a LED.
