Material Category
How to see a cloud(s) is an art installation featuring a volumetric paper sculpture and a dual-channel video projection. It is meant to embody infinity in deconstructing a dynamic system driven by fractal structure and reveal fractals’ manifestations both in nature and human society as an underlying geometry across the universe. As an artist and creator, I am looking into clouds as an example of natural fractal structure and using it as a point of departure to consider and explore the possibilities of art work inspired by scientific theory. I am also experimenting with characteristics of various materials and media to build a poetic environment and convey philosophical insight. Instead of being informed of a clear definition or various characteristics of fractals, the audience would be visually seduced into noticing this piece in a gallery space, stopping by it, observing it, reading the label aside, trying to understand and contemplate… while at the same time a moment of feeling inspired is expected to be induced.
