“Dao begets One, One begets Two, Two begets Three, Three begets all things. All things carry the females and embrace the male. And by breathing together, they live in harmony…”
From temple to school, to living quarters, to the creative hub, this is a place for people to study the universe. Through religious places, dialogue with God and wish making, humans have been trying to reach out to the universes. Knowledge prompt mankind to explore more, and school has become another platform to understand the universe. This is a place to connect to the sky and the universe.
Borrowing the open design architectural form of Shing Wong Temple and The Government Central School, and through its rounded form and the gate, Heliocentric is a light installation representing the movement of the universe and its relationship with mankind. It carries out dialogues to its history and functionality. With the lighting arrangement, kinetic movement of the light, and the performer, it displays the close relationship between the universe, knowledge and human.
Although it is a performative installation, visitors are able to walk into the installation at any time.
