The wisdom of water is the emergence of the emotional body in social practice. Water, according to the Chinese theory of five elements, serves as a symbol and material pathway to the movement and expression of emotions. Water, as symbol and material pathway for energy, is viewed in the new society as sacred to the human experience. The water is to be protected, cherished, and shared amongst people to create a more humane society.
물의 지혜는 사회적인 삶에서 분출되는 감정과도 같다. 고대 중국에서 말하는 5대 원소 중의 하나인 물은 움직임과 감정 표현의 상징이자 도구다. 과거 깨끗한 물 관리에 소홀했던 때와 달리 새로운 세계에서는 물을 소중히 여긴다. 새로운 사회에서 물은 에너지로 통하는 길이자 에너지의 상징이다. 이것은 성스러운 인간 경험이다. 그러므로 더욱 인간적인 사회를 구현하기 위해 물을 보호하고 소중히 다루어 모든 이가 공유해야 마땅하다. 물을 아끼고 존중하는 것은 곧 우리 인간 사회를 구성하는 감정을 아끼고 존중한다는 뜻이다.

This installation is composed of five elements- light, weight, time, distance, memory. Nautical Twilight is the span of time when sea navigation by horizon is not possible and land objects require artificial illumination for viewing. Salt of the earth denotes benevolence. Triangulation is a navigational strategy to locate an unknown point with two known points. Omniscient refers to unlimited understanding. Sage and Cypress oils evoke clear and open thought.

A printed and folded book containing a poem translated into nine languages, with an image from the triptych printed on the verso, was available for viewers to take with them.

The installation engages in ongoing iterations, considering the historical narratives and concerns of each geographical location. Viewers often describe a sensation of submersion, disorientation, confusion, calm and clarity, expanding and contracting as they move through space.

Suspended Planes, installation, Los Angeles, USA

Suspended Planes, 2014 Configurations 1.0-4.0

Two square planes, one clear and one glossy black paint, suspended by tension from which nails affix twine to the wall. Painted gold clamps grasp each corner, as twine slips through. A projection of light passes onto, through, and around the planes as a meditation on words written by Kafka, “We photograph things in order to drive them out of our minds.“ In a single-reflex system, such a quote appears articulated from observable reality, as each configuration assigning a new variable, shows the limits of such a system. Viewers are able to physically navigate this single reflex system, with the aim to point to multiple systems of the their bodies to enable and dismantle a singular-reflex system. The final configuration 4,0 leading to a direct experience of the single-reflex planes obfuscation of bodily projection.
