In this small sculpture made out of common household materials, Fukuko puts the brightness back into a used lightbulb with pops of bright color. Placed on a styrofoam pedestal that is already fragile, the top part of the lightbulb is painted in a celadon-like light blue. The shattering lightbulb and clear ring of tungsten is already here.

Fukuko's objects are totally non-functional, but in that way, functional in their own worlds. She doesn't try to hide or elevate the textures of cheap, common materials like cardboards, cupcake papers, and loofahs. If anything, her contraptions amplify original materials with bright colors and patterns like seeing an onion flowering for the first time.
