天下/Universal Balance

Through globalization, external influences increasingly affect our ways of seeing, therefore raising the relevancy of the search and understanding of one’s self identity. Figuratively, as the external world becomes smaller and in this state of flux, is there a need to expand the inner world by maintaining a stronger individualism in both society and self to achieve balance?

Influenced by my Chinese heritage, this work questions and explores the place and possibilities of infusing Daoist aesthetic values of naturalism and law, contributing towards a Chinese ideal of Universal Balance (tian xia), in tandem yet building upon modern aesthetic viewpoints.

The Transience of Things

The transience of things is a kinetic sculpture, which focuses on the interdependence of memory and consciousness, exploring notions of beauty in transience by examining the invisible boundaries between time and space.

The work consists of a mirrored box depicting the repeated cycle of a light bulb falling through space. Its aesthetics is primarily oriented towards evoking in the viewer empathy towards the inevitable passing of all things, but yet the subconscious realization of its immense beauty by celebrating its very state of impermanence.

After Dark
100cm(h) x 70cm(w)

After Dark is an interpretation on Japanese author Haruki Murakami’s acclaimed novel of the same title, specifically the last scene of the story, during the transient moment whereby dawn envelops the chaotic and emotional depth of the night. The work seeks to recreate the definition of space and life by articulating a tension between the mundane patterns of the everyday and the forces spurred on by the burst of this intangible state.
