“Time is an abstract entity”. We are not experiencing time itself but through its byproducts.
4:46 4:58 5:05 is a small-scale glass installation, depicting the poetic aspect of time passing. It features 8 pieces of clear glass with hand-etched patterns, placed on a base made by wood. The patterns on each layer of glass resemble fragments of shadow created by natural sunlight. They form an abstraction of the movement of shadow as I captured during a specific time -- from 4:46 to 4:58, to 5:05 -- as they are lined up vertically, showing her belief that time is not just a set of numbers but also observations of changes on its byproducts. It interacts with lights as it projects the shadow on the background when the light is on. The shadow is different with different light sources and motions, recreating my observations of light and shadow within the frames of time.
