I cannot remember the last time I saw the the sunrise and sunset.

The fluorescent lighting occupied my life, sometimes I even forget the difference between an artificial light and the “real” light. I started to think about the system that is replacing the nature resource and how it turns us into high urbanized “animals”. We have already been paying for water for centuries, the sun could be the next.

As reported, there are about one million Chinese living underground due to the high rental above the surface. For Hénard, the cities of the future are a combination of high-rise and underground world.


To people living underneath the land, to people living deep in the concrete forests, the sun machine from SANTSUWU, brings the sunlight back. This is a speculative product, a vending machine sells 5 seconds of sunshine for one quarter.
