|Project: The Origin of the World 2013
The Origin of the World 2013 is inspired by the world of biology and microorganisms. Cells multiply in abundance, divide, and merge in sometimes slow, sometimes rapid rhythm. Each cell functions autonomously, yet in coordination with the others, like cellular automata. When the viewer moves, the trajectory of the cells is disrupted. We find ourselves facing an intriguing world of life that perpetually replenishes itself. A black-and-white world gradually gives way to vivid, saturated colors. The sinuous curves rippling across the walls of the gallery hark back to the 1970s while creating unprecedented visual experiences that verge on being artificial paradises.
