Materials: Track, Motor, LED, plastic

2009

Visited Art Stage Singapore 2011 B2 Halls, 14 January 2011. A white space projection room filled with clear plastic boxes displayed in a way that resembled a city scape, this installation catch my breathe away, going straight “waoh woah” in exclamation. With the use of LED light that moves on the motor track , shadows casted on the wall creates an every changing landscape that appear in an architectural form. Time and movement play an important role in his installation, where I see myself visually ‘travels’ through the architectural wonders, following the lyrical slowness of the moving image.

I appreciated the use of simple materials in the installation and how it elegantly was portrayed,also not forgetting  its clever way of  re-capturing the cityscape in an hypnotizing manner.
