Pinning the light is a permanent installation introducing experiential art to beauty space. This renovation work takes on a previously standard Japanese convenience store turning it into a Hair Salon. To reduce the cost of the renovation, the walls and ceiling were finished with raw OSB boards. 120000 golden headed thumbtacks were pushed over the central wall generating a scintillating surface. The pins sparkles by reflecting outdoor sunlight on daytime and the indoor lighting at night. The reflection changes according to the light and the position of the viewer in an interactive fashion.
