Our exhibition The Constant at CoCA Seattle will debut an ephemeral sand installation titled Nothing and Everything in the US. We will also exhibit our earlier work, a series of framed paper artwork which incorporates light to create geometric poetry.
In 2016, Nothing and Everything won the 2015 TID Award of Space Installation Art, an annual international award held in Taipei, Taiwan.
Below is a write-up of the installation Nothing and Everything:
A temporary stillness cast in sand, however beautiful, might vanish in a swipe. “Nothing and Everything” intends to illuminate that moment, a solitary moment to question if there is meaning in the impermanent nature of life. An ambiance of expansiveness is essential. A clear open space dimly lit with directional lights near ground sets the stage for the viewer to discover, reflect and contemplate. We chose sand, transient in its nature, as the ideal material to convey the idea that the act of capturing a fleeting moment is inconceivable, subjective, shifting.The frame has two symbolic meanings: it is a gateway to past, present and future moments; it is a mirror reflecting the viewer’s mind. Under the directional lights and with movement of the viewer, two sides of each grain of sand are always visible, undulating with the appearance and disappearance of every moment and thought. - Wan-Yi and Roger
Below is the series of framed paper artwork that will be included in the exhibition.
Light changes the appearance of these paper artworks. Watch this video.
In Silent Melodies, the composition of notes is completely different from one another in the same design. We use our intuition to come up different compositions for the eye. Even though our process isn't science-based, we have learned that there is a lot of math in music.
