The Fragility of Complexity




We will eventually meet.
我們最終會相遇。

THE FRAGILITY OF COMPLEXITY


The world today is built upon multiple layers of complex interconnected systems. As time goes by, the illusion of the stability and sustainability of these systems is starting to fade away. This kinetic sculpture composed of hammers and light bulbs invites the viewer to contemplate this delicate balance of complex fragility. Light, glass and metal perform a ritual of periodic motion, carefully choreographed to avoid each other as long as each element of the system continues to function as intended.
當今世界正建立在一套複雜且互為牽制的系統之上,隨著時間的推移,這套系統的穩定性受到質疑,可持續的幻象逐漸破滅(參照時下肆虐的疫情)。藝術家創作的這件裝置作品,用錘子和燈泡的動態循環,邀請觀眾去思考複雜之下的脆弱性,去找到週期循環和必然結果的微妙平衡–光/玻璃/金屬各司其職,只要其中的每一個按照預期運行,一個可怕的結果就可以被避免。
