This work was installed in a water-purifier tank at a wastewater treatment plant. By placing broken, blinking, and dying fluorescents in the space, the work represents "ambiguous existence.” The fluorescent light bulbs still exist as bulbs even after they have lost their functions as lighting equipment. This ambiguous and uncertain existence is also an element shared with the abandoned building where the work was installed. The unsteady blinking of the dying and broken fluorescent lights and the space lit by them indicate the end. At the same time, they remind the viewers of the previous state of the fluorescents.
