MA work


The project is a site-specific work consisted of moving images, still image, and the void area inside the gallery space. The concept is to create a multi-elements collage within space: a ‘time image’.

  • I feel the perception of the present is like the touching point of a phonographic needle placed on a vinyl record; my gaze scrapes into the eternal recurrence, scratching through the grooves between retention and protention embedded in experience of duration. I examine the presence of time as an inspatial entity that exists in notions as continuous elaborations of past-present-future, both in a personal and social context. Intrigued by the stability and stillness of natural forms and temporal events that break in or lay on the relative balance,  I use natural forms and daily scenes symbolically in my practice as a metaphor of the pure form of the immutable change and movement.
