Clusters fluorescent lights have never been so hauntingly beautiful as they are in Hitoshi Kuriyama's portfolio of work. His sculptures are incredibly electrifying. Forming various shapes from balls of energy to long lines of lightning-like strikes, they are just as mesmerizing off as when they are turned on. The chaotic mess Hitoshi Kuriyama's sculptures form has a destructive beauty that provides a refreshing change from the routine of everyday life.

Using mainly shattered fluorescent lights, Hitoshi Kuriyama's sculptures are given new life by animating "the darkness of the universe with an irregular, unpredictable rhythm," as written on Beautiful Decay. His latest work will be put on display at Glasstress 2011 in Venice, Italy, beginning in June.
