Nothing more.” is a kinetic lighting work which employs wavelengths of light at each periphery of the visible spectrum. These are the absolute bottom of the food-chain; they are the colours of light that are most used in the process of photosynthesis.  The work considers the relationship between us and the sunlight which provides the energy that is the basis for almost all life on earth. The natural systems which convert this energy into forms we humans can consume are intensely complex. In an attempt to engineer and simplify this conversion, there is an increasing variety of human endeavour to grow plants indoors, cut off from the natural world, by using electric light. In such activities, efficiency is extremely important. Recently, it has become possible to funnel our valuable electric resources into only specific types of light and that has proven a boon to of growers of indoor fauna.  But, given a strict and steady diet of CO2, H2O and electromagnetic radiation at 460nm and 700nm, do those plants long for the slow-changing hues of a sunset? Or for the pale hours of early morning? What becomes of the greens and yellows and the great subtitles of the rest of the spectrum? And, if we were forced to flee a newly-hostile environment and grew a tree underground, would we become nostalgic for a time when nature nurtured us? Or would we sit in that subterranean pinkish glow and bask in the ingenuity of our efficient system which gives all we need, and nothing more?「你所需的 沒別的了」是一件動態照明作品,它採用在可見光譜的兩端的光波長,這是食物鏈的最後底線;也是光合作用過程中最常用的色光。  本次的作品探討了我們與陽光之間的關係,陽光提供的能量是地球上幾乎所有生命的基礎。這個自然系統非常複雜,可以將能量轉化為人類可以使用的形式。為了設計和簡化這種轉換,越來越多的人類致力研究並使用電燈在室內種植植物,使其與自然界隔絕。在植物種植的過程中,效率極為重要。最近,我們已成功將寶貴的電力資源集中到特定類型的光源上,且證明這是室內種植者的福音。   不過,給予穩定且嚴格控量的二氧化碳、水、和藍光(460nm)及紅光(700nm)的電磁輻射,這些植物是否能會渴望日落緩慢變化的顏色?或清晨的蒼白時光?綠色和黃色的變化以及其他光譜的微妙之處是什麼?假設,我們被迫逃離到一個不友善的新環境並在地下種出一棵樹,我們是否會懷念大自然養育我們的時光?或者我們會坐在地下的人造粉紅色的光芒中,在我們獨創的高效系統下浸曬與取暖?畢竟它給了我們所需要的一切,沒有別的了?
