Shobana Jeyasingh asked Shizuka to design light for her new project City:Zen. She described her idea:
‘Food is one of the success stories of city living. Flavours collide, distort and mutate.
Memory and desire are stirred together in equal measure. Where is food in or digital footprint?
Is there a recipe for the perfectly integrated citizen?’
Shizuka's lighting design followed the idea of her concept. She imagined a sequence of situations : architecture-like image in a cityscape, oceanic world with exotic flavours, asceptized neutral space for food examination and transforming process, sensual space with mixed colours like perfect flavour and emotion, and a silent dark blue space to feel inner happiness in the mind and body.
Music is composed by Orlando Gough, costume is designed by Ursula Bombshell.
