The Candidness of Absolute Zero16-19

18F Hallway|Ceramic 26x22x20cm 2016

The series of “The Confession of Absolute Zero” is to explore the possibility and limitation of space. The white space is as open as my philosophy and is left open to gauge my life. I do not write a poem of art with light or shadow. It is the open and dynamic space I design that invites the beam and shade.

To engage with the reality from a distance is an intended way of communication to the world. My way. Choosing distance rather than deviation indeed offers a more rational approach to the world and its framework when one is searching for the true meaning and real nature of life.

In the process of discerning virtual versus real, we constantly reposition ourselves in the Quadrant of life and redefine all our relation coordinates within it. The white space bridges the life and its whereabouts; it is the channel between emotional awareness and rational consciousness. It is also the center of flux. In fact, the barely perceptible existence of the white space interprets the light and shadow from time to time, reflecting every single ever changing moment throughout the life.

To grasp the beam or capture the shade; to feel the virtual or sense the real; the white space is always there, loaded with the weights of life and embracing the changes of it.
