Static Snow

Snow machines, black paper confetti, strobe lights, mirrors

Tang Contemporary Art

In this installation, softly falling black paper “snow" and a pulsating white strobe light create a physical “static noise” within an infinitely expansive space. The contrasts between the sensations of light and dark, compact and infinite space, and slowly-falling snow and fast-pulsing light recall the opposing energies seen in Cry Joy Park––––Fold. Here, the two energies are suspended in a state of chaos, as if they exist in a pre-Big Bang universe humming with potential energy before exploding into being.
