Forty-Four Sunsets in a Day is a poignant and whimsical installation comprised of a small "asteroid." The asteroid is covered with exuberant plants painted entirely black with Chinese ink, and spins slowly to make 44 rotations a day. A 100-meter long ink scroll on the surrounding gallery walls provides a panoramic view of an arduous journey through multiple sunsets. Antoine de Saint-Exupery's The Little Prince serves as the whimsical springboard for this installation with dark undertones. The installation was on view at Hanart Square, Hong Kong, 2013.
