“This piece explores meaning and purpose in our culture where so much is disposable. It was created for the purpose of harvesting solar energy and expending it to make some LEDs blink, a way of declaring its own existence. Beyond the simplicity of existing and blinking, what point is there for it though? The world certainly isn’t changed whether it exists and functions or not, and if any of the electronic components were to fail, it wouldn’t stop existing. Even if it were to be disassembled and cast away, the memory of it may still exist in everyone who experienced its presence, until they no longer exist. In this sense, is this piece so different from the life of a plant, or an ant, or spider, mouse, cat, dog, or human? Our existence is only for a short moment and recognizing that everything around us is just as fleeting lends perspective to the value of life and the moment around it.”
