Sundial
2017
video installation (loop)
dimension variable
Sundial is a video installation in which the silhouette of my body moves slowly along with time. With a fine art major, I am always interested in what makes us suitable members in society. Despite my struggles to keep making art, I physically live in the United States, but officially am invisible because art doesn't generate social status or legitimate income. I cannot help staying still where I am now, spending time just like a sundial. During many years living in New York. I realized that there are many invisible people here, for example, illegal immigrants who stay in marginal areas in society, living their life by an airy promise of future. Sundial is also a metaphorical way to express my empathy towards those invisible people as well as a representation of my identity as an artist.
