The Glowing Light Project
“The city, however, does not tell its past, but contains it like the lines of a hand, written in the corners of the streets, the gratings of the windows, the banisters of the steps, the antennae of the lightning rods, the poles of the flags, every segment marked in turn with scratches, indentations, scrolls.” Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino Similar to this passage, I use mirrors to shine light on the corners of Treasure Hill that we might have overlooked. In daylight the mirror frame ...

Hanafubuki (Falling Cherry Blossoms)
On the beginning of 2014, when I went to Tokyo because of the arts-in-residence, I encountered the heavy snow in winter and the blossoming season in spring. It was the first time to witness such a phenomenon with snow and petals pervading in sky to trigger infinite imagination. Hanafubuki also referred to as falling cherry blossoms meant the period a week after Sakura fully blossoming with the brilliant image filled with Sakura petals flying in the sky. It was aimed to record such a brilliant ...

Shimenawa
On the beginning of 2014, I went to Tokyo because of the arts-in-residence. I witnessed the enclosing ropes referred to as Shimenawa in Japanese bound with a white paper and tied on sacred trees everywhere. It was suggestive such an arrangement meant the separation from the spirit world and the human world. In such a sacred zone dwelt blessing spirits. Therefore, I decided to choose such a kind of material to re-interpret the imaginary line drawn by the Shimenawa and imply the hope in darkn ...

Universe
“The universe is space, time, matter, and energy combined.” Chih-Wei Chuang uses fluorescent lamps as his creative medium, combining kinetic art and digital sculptures to create a floating form that emits light in a dark space. While he is inspired by everyday forms and shapes, Chuang’s work transcends reality. Whether you see an mysterious ocean or a dream, the illuminated forms are a reflection of space itself. Even a tiny puff of air could be a whole universe.
