Planar Tunnel

The idea of this work comes from the silk garment excavated from King Ma’s Mound. The silk garment, as thin as cicada’s wings, tells all the memories and history. This piece of circular silk is created upon the artist’s acquaintance of the biological clock of silkworm, the span of its spinning activity and the regularity of how it piles silk up. The light casts a dim shadow from the silk on the wall, floating, and then leaks away. It seems to depict a tunnel expanding infinitely.
