On the Ground develops from an overlooked newspaper clipping on 19th March 2014, about Dr. Chao-Lin Kuo, a Taiwanese cosmologist and the team of Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. They announced that they had discovered features in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) that are consistent with gravitational waves from the early universe. With the BICEP2 telescope, this result agreed with predictions from the decades-old theory of inflation.
Along with this dedicated cosmologist, the crowd occupying the Parliament ignited stormy scenes. While the dates objectively recording both events, the artist suddenly notices the very moment of a faint individual in the collective. Retrospecting the experiences with a temporary community and of its mobilization and gathering, what strikingly real is the loneliness caused by the disengagement while being an outsider in a movement, in which a sense of unfamiliarity is also included. With the assemblage of spatial experiences, the artist tackles with a shared body memory within a temporary community and explores surroundings in the public sphere. The potential connection behind those seemingly unassociated fragments depicts how to frame a collective in a decisive event.
