The first ancient Roman stadium and the largest, Circus Maximus, is situated between a valley in Rome, with it regarded as a quintessential model for ancient Roman stadiums. The stadium was where chariot races took place back in the days, filling the arena with power and beauty. However, all that is left now is the ruins of the racetracks. While researching for information on the location, different data were discovered regarding its active years, specifications, dimension, space, and other details, resulting in a site that is collaborative constructed by mismatching descriptions and records based on people’s collective memories.
This artwork, Circus Maximus, is a prototype for this ancient Roman stadium created with my signature approach using geometric deconstruction and reconstruction, with the stadium appearing quite futuristic. Galloping in this stadium are animals and physical forms derived from my extensive imaginations for such creatures, especially with impressions of horses. It also represents a relentless pursuit for ideal and also embodies imaginative thoughts for a spiritual arena.
