About Metaphysics

Animated

Many things in the world are perceptible but not visible. Some things we can only feel, but not understand. Some things touch us and move us deeply, but not physically. We can only confirm some things through experience. Qi is believed to be part of everything that exists as a "life force" or "spiritual energy" that pervades the natural world. It cannot be seen, but in some paintings, the artist creates the flow of Qi to present a vivid world. Artists use Qi to show the presence of life in their artwork, and it’s also believed to be a metaphor for the energy that powers our body and spirit. In this work, a single object is gradually deformed, shifted, and rotated in an attempt to find a pattern in the chaos that describes the workings of the life force and constitutes a living entity. It is inspired by the fluent Tai Chi movement, Cloud Hand. The basic unit starts in one position and flows to another. It develops with organic rotations and movements, like practicing Tai Chi on the canvas. Metaphysics is not only a set of images but also a generative system. This system is invisible to viewers, but every single output is its physical presentation. It tries to simulate an organic world, to make the audience feel the Qi, which makes the code generative system live. That movement composes this piece, and once we feel the vital life force on the inside, we are touched by the process of metaphysics.
