A simple fluorescent lamp is randomly blinking, however, this is not an actual fluorescent lamp that is filled with mercury vapour inside a glass tube. In this ambiguous video sculpture, we see a lightning and blinking fluorescent lamp image on the shaped LCD display that has three red, green and blue colour micro light emission sources. This is a moving image that keeps glowing like an actual fluorescent lamp even in the dark night. The exquisite encounter of LCD display shape and the fluorescent lamp shape, creates minimalistic video sculpture. The title came from René Magritte’s iconic painting The Treachery of Images, we can read the “Ceci n’est pas une pipe” (This is not a pipe). These complex works deal with the relationship between the representation of image, sculpture and text through the glowing moving image.
