Rotation Balance.1/4

27F|Mixed media 13x10cm 2017


To maintain a state of stability requires unceasing motion.
The earth revolves around the sun, the sun revolves around the center of the Milky Way, and the spiral shaped Milky Way rotates as well. The rotating universe is a giant spinning top.

The natural world exists in a state of oppositions and correspondences. The constant fusions and separations give birth to the golden code that unlocks life. Between yin and yang and light and dark, all the matter in the universe performs a splendid, unending chess match of attraction and repulsion.

Our series of creations made for the Silks Club – Revolving Time. The spinning top, symbol of the universe, was handmade and shaped using thin copper sheets. The innumerable pinholes are sediments of the creative process, keeping it featherweight and constantly revolving. Not only does it invoke the starry sky, it also recalls the primeval mind.
