About artworks

"Fuku-chan in Murono" by Eico

"Time (Koinji)" by Wang Mao (王茂)

Collect 266 mirrors and write down one letter from the Heart Sutra on each of the mirror which will be installed on the terrace. Each mirror reflect something onto the wall as the sun moves but you can't see letters written on the mirros and you can't understand the meaning of them at all. You may feel you are cut off but this would be the way to recognise the world in this contemporary era.

"Digestion" by Li Shuo (李烁)

The artwork, "Digestion" was created through antidromic thinking as observing the production process of wooden engravings. Using the surface of a globe as printing plate, it invites anyone to be an artist and feature historical events as well as biological specimens. The synergy that would emerge between the response of the equipment and audience, the artwork form, blur, shatter and digest collective memories through fragmentation and reconstruction of the surface of the globe.
