Tech: grows slower and darker over the next 100 years, dies on the last day of the century. For the first 9 months of the new century it turns gold and then repeats the process. 

This art piece delves into the serenity that can be found within the notions of mortality and vitality. This is captured through the bold use of the artist's own blood, creating a thought-provoking narrative. “As time passes, this piece grows slow-moving an dim. At the end of 100 years, Yūgen dies and turns black for a day. A new cycle begins and Yūgen glows gold for 9 months and is reborn, endlessly looping. We may never see the death and birth of this piece, but our surviving generation will”.

The notions of mortality and vitality are explored and captured through the bold use of the artist’s own blood, creating a thought-provoking narrative. They symbolise the profound beauty that can be found in the cycle of life. Engineered by Jack Kasbeer (satoshigoat)
