Time Capsule ─ Tell a Story with No Ending
The point is how to tell a story. The presence of the creator in a place is a medium, and in the course of creating, he can delineate time and space.
The creator, as a collector and a coordinator, transforms materials obtained from the surroundings and presents the work in another form. He uses polyester resin as the main material for its transparent and solid texture, which reinforces the visual effect of congealment. The inner materials, comprising works and objects provided by students, are displayed as visual elements In this project, objects or creations made by the participants are seemingly floating in the process of creation. Each object has its own story, but when viewed as part of a larger picture, they connect to each other and collectively form a complex image. The creator uses these materials to invent a story without either a beginning or an ending. It is up to the audience to figure out the storylines and exert their imagination on these stories.
