Ultra -Kuroi Taiyo (Black Sun)-

An enormous sphere covered with spiky protuberances radiating in all directions. A "transcendental sculpture" dancing with sparks released from a resonance transformer (Tesla coil *) inside.
Containing lightning, that phenomenon far surpassing the power of humans, this sphere consists of a coating of steel in a molecular structure pattern that is fused with thorn-like cones of black carbon. It is an attempt at creating a sculpture of that which is unknown, beyond human knowledge, and at presenting the spectacle of its manifestation.
*Tesla coil: The resonance transformer invented in the 1890s by the great inventor Nikola Tesla (1856-1943), who built the foundations of the electrical and mechanical engineering technologies of the twentieth century. An artificial lightning generator that can produce high frequency, high voltage electricity utilizing the resonance between a primary coil and a secondary coil.

放射状にのびる突起物に覆われた巨大な球体。その中では、共振変圧器 (テスラコイル※)が放つ火花が歌って躍る"超越的彫刻作品"。
稲妻という人間の力をはるかに超えた存在を内蔵し、それを取り巻く分子構造の形を成す鉄の被膜、角棘のような黒い炭素の円錐とが融合し、人智を超えた未知なる彫刻と、その出現の光景を試みる。
※テスラコイル:20世紀の電気・機械工学技術の基盤を築いた偉大なる発明家・ニコラ・テスラ(1856-1943)が 1890年代に発明した共振変圧器。一次コイルと二次コイルの共振を利用して高周波高電圧を発生させることができる人工の稲妻発生装置。
