The New Year’s Eve in the Taipei City is an annual repertory theater, when cars and crowds flood in around the landmark Taipei 101 for the year-end fireworks show. During what is similar to a religious frenzy, traffic is jammed, people part with hard-earned money in buying spree, and the fireworks serve as the greatest stimulus for these all. At such a festive time, people are forces, at least partially, into gatherings, dates and dinners, all of which scenes from a grand, metropolitan theater.

In "Exploding 101", a sensor is used to light up Taipei 101 and the City of Taipei against the night, showing the skyscraper as a center of financial power and the transient dazzle of the fireworks. They structure a bubble-ish perception of happiness, magical and yet hollow. The LED lighting that mimics the fireworks explodes and expands, as if the absurd economic miracle the island celebrates, and then quickly vanishes into the metropolitan night sky.
