Rhythm is a live performative installation comprising twenty-four smart Wi-Fi-controlled LED light bulbs. Each light bulb links with a light source in the artist’s apartment and will be switched on and off correspondingly. By live-streaming the use of light in different functional areas of the artist’s apartment, this installation displays the artist’s life trajectory and creates her life rhythm during the pandemic through the changes of light.
