Oneness

, 2004 Video projection, rock, fabric, 25 x 28 x 7 ft.

A video loop of moving image of water is projected onto the rock.

The translucent screen is hung 7 feet above the floor stretching across the entire room. It creates a low “ceiling” just higher than the average height of a person. The low ceiling (screen) is a metaphor for the universe. Viewers are invited to walk into the room and feel the close proximity between the “cosmos” above and “earth” (floor) below. The experience alludes to the Daoist idea of constant transformation of all things that every being is an integral part of the universe, including humans. The installation is a metaphor for the Daoist Oneness, the interdependency and mutual inclusiveness of humanity, universe and earth.
