Loaves of Light

Zero Waste Life

15m 00s
Broadcast on October 28, 2022 Available until October 28, 2025

Kobe is known for bread. But unsold loaves spoil and must be discarded. Turning this waste into something different is Kobe-based artist Morita Yukiko. She adds LED lights and preserves it with long-lasted resin, producing lamps that stand the test of time. Lit from the inside, we see it literally in a new light. Even though it can no longer be eaten, she aims to illuminate what she calls, "its living beauty." And the inner glow she gives it is an expression of her love of bread.
