The Collapse of Cool 酷的崩解 Cement and Woofer / 水泥、 低音喇吧 Size Variable / 視場地尺寸而定 2013 ( Installation view of NO ONE RIVER FLOWS in Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, Taipei, 2013 )
'The Collapse of Cool' the work explores how art can express its ethical significance through things. For the installation of the work, the concrete was watered and transformed, gradually shaping the model as time goes by. There are also statistics collected from the observation of the Weather Bureau during the 921 earth- quake. These are also transformed into sound waves that disturb the concrete’s watered side, revealing a process of mutual paradoxes and inter-subjectivity between the violence of natural catastrophes and the constructions, showing possibilities of the poeticization of materials as well as traces of their inner origin.
