在農田中一座平凡的紅穀倉,一通電話聚合三位友人便是雕塑燈具的起點。在不允許工業生產的廠房中,他們不時一臉正經地向農地巡查人員謊稱各工具於農務的作用,其中包括切割玻璃用的鑽頭及模具。14是一粒(大手)手掌大的玻璃珠子,上牆是折射分明的半球體,吊起數顆成懸空的螢火、或是數十顆錯落的漫天星光。

先將玻璃燒成濃稠糖漿倒入半球模型,同時留意弧度及氣壓的測量參數,保留倒模過程中自然產生的不規則的表面線條、半球中的氣泡、以及冷卻形成的彎月面。要麼直接鑽開半球玻璃體,要麼融合成關節狀的玻璃球體,再在中空部份載入圓柱燈管,使光線在從不劃一的形態中自由折射分散。

題外話,為什麼農田中的紅穀倉是紅色?
在油漆塗層等建材還未出現前,為了保護及密封木材建成的穀倉,大部分農戶會在穀倉表面塗抹橙紅色的亞麻籽植物油來防止黴菌生成,據說亦有混合動物血液等較奢侈的做法。後來市面廣泛出現油漆及密封膠等建材,紅色穀倉便成了傳統的象徵。
