Cosmos Garden is based on my first visit to Treasure Hill. The intertwined paths are full of stories, leading us into a labyrinth where we do not want to find the exit at all. Treasure Hill is a like the extending and self-complicating space in Jorge Luis Borges’s The Garden of Forking Paths that every forked road leads to a story with a similar but slightly different plot. The shimmering street lights seem to suggest that we are spending a magical and wonderful night in the mirror images of the labyrinthine theatre.
At the end of the alley is the unexpected world, while travelers are walking across the Garden of Forking Paths. With a lighted map and a labyrinth with endless intricacies, we enjoy the moment of getting lost. Every corner seems familiar in the repeated scenes. The travelers are weaving a new story together. The city in the night is like a mysterious theatre, and we are there to be part of the performance. Every time we visit it, we will bump into the garden of the Universe. Only those who never stop their pursuit can keep the night in private.
