The Sliding Myth
Engraved tempered glass, aluminium structural profile, aluminum sliding track
Each framed piece: (W)130 x (H)241cm
Before the typhoon strikes, it is common to diagonally tape the glass of external doors and windows to form a crisscross pattern, reducing the risk of glass shattering and potential injuries.
"The Sliding Myth" simulates the aftermath of the aforementioned situation. It carves traces of the remaining adhesive tape on the glass and constructs a row of sliding doors on tracks within the space, although the number of sliding doors is not enough to completely close off the area.
In the zone untouched by wind pressure, the traces of fiction that once resisted are gradually weakened by the deeper carving, eroding their homogeneity and strength. Regardless of how they shift, they are constantly renewing the void.
