Dream/Yume, 2015

MEDIUM steel, wood, imitation moss, mirrors and sound (collaboration with Mike Emerson)

Ancient Japanese legend tells of many spirits in the forest, they float through time, traversing this world, and many other worlds that we know little of. Our mortal existence melds into monotony and routine, but the truth is that every minute, every second is different from that before, and there might be doors waiting to opened, opportunities leading to a different life if only we realize.

We see ourselves in the mirror every day, our reflection reversed, from left to right. Time passes, and we grow old inside the mirror. In she story of Snow White, the mirror is asked the question “Mirror. Mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest of the all?”. The Mirror can not lie. As we know, the mirror showed the Queen that she was no longer the most beautiful.

In our lives, we sometimes wonder …Is this Dream? …or a Nightmare? …or the Real world? …when world keeps passing by us. We dream while awake, we dream during sleep, so many suns & moonlights from the cradle to the grave. And when we wake up …What was the dream? What is the dream? What will the dream be?
