Proxy light

Things are left “stories” when they are made.
For example, the story of pens is to write, and that of chairs is to sit people.
I changed original stories, or functions of things into stories concerning lighting of those.
The acting lighting means the thing playing the role of lighting.
I named these works after their original stories.




3 conditions of the proxy light

· Proxy light must have "stories" of materials and represent them

· Materials of the proxy light must have their own uses, or "the story."

· Materials of the proxy light must not be worked in order to spoil their own impression, or "the story."
