    Yoshioka’s ‘Stardust’ chandelier is part of the ‘Crystal Palace’ project in collaboration with Swarovski.Yoshioka’s piece consists of approximately 20,000 crystals which not only emit the sparkle of a chandelier they are also capable of transmitting still and video images.
    One night, I had a dream. It was as if innumerable transparent particles of light jeweled the air. I saw a visionary scene of beautiful images floating in the night sky. Awoken from the dream, I imagined creating a futuristic chandelier, which becomes a fusion of crystals and modern technology.TokujinYoshioka
