Ether - liquid mirror -

Kaito Sakuma (Japan)
The circular mirror that vibrates at very high speed is a speaker. It senses the viewer’s heartbeat and synchronises with it to suggest a transformation in self-awareness. The circular shape is influenced by Shintoism, which is unique to Japan. It asks us to question our sense of values in life.
