Ground of long exposure

2020

The art installation aims to reflect an image of stars captured under long exposure of a camera. During COVID-19, most people have spent more time at home and our pace of living has been slowed down. However, at the same time, we all have more time appreciating things that we fail to notice during our busy daily life and reflect on what’s happening around us. Now we have the opportunities to become ‘stationary cameras’ that can capture the slow motion of the earth and the light of the stars from afar. 

The star pattern is being embedded onto the ground instead. The platform will be made of fiberglass with slits where the LED strips are embedded. A final layer of transparent glue will be put on top to achieve a flat and safe walking surface. Besides, there are two convex mirrors being placed on poles and they will allow visitors to look at the installation in one glance.
