STARWALL

Musician, filmmaker, and artist Sami Sänpäkkilä created this site-specific installation for the Louis Vuitton store in Tokyo. The “stars” in the Starwall are holes drilled in a black wall and lit from behind by the sun during the day, and fluorescent lights in the evening, with the size of the holes corresponding to the brightness of the stars they represent.

Sänpäkkilä writes: “For the gallery space Espace Louis Vuitton in Tokyo, Japan I have chosen the exact middle of the exhibition as the alignment point which is 25th July 2012 at 16.00. This is when the real stars will align with the fake stars drilled on the wall.”
