A Gambling World II

Design Statement

“Since I want to survive, I have to win it all.” Every resident in Macau are deeply affected by the dramatic flourishing of gambling industry. Living in such a big casino, everyone seems to become others’ bet, exchanging their lives for numbers. In “A Gambling World II”, the main concept of lighting design is “rotation”. By means of the rotation of lights, the stage made up by boards and sands is transformed into roulette. The light is like the ball on roulette, deciding people’s fate and becoming a non-negotiable factor on the stage, which implies that we are living in a gamble.
