About ‘time drifting sand’ landscape

‘Time Quicksand’ is one of the core installations of this exhibition, which fully embodies the oriental people’s concept of reincarnation of time. The device sucks and releases fine sand in a specific time interval through a loop-driven device of a dark cloth. Therefore, we can observe that the four sections of fine sand flow down from the zenith waterfall to the four tripods below. When the tripod is filled with sand, the machine will suck the sand out from the bottom and then circulate to the zenith container through the pipeline. Inside, finally released from the pores.

希望 We hope that through such a device, the most intuitive and simple visual communication will embody the oriental people’s philosophy about time. No matter what the times have become, whether we use machinery or electronics to time, oriental understanding of time always points to the most essential-nature.
