Now Past Now (Work in Progress)






The concept of time can be understood as a highly divided space in which human-made boundaries subdivide the natural environment through regulations and laws.

Our focus lies upon the demarcation of time and space (time zones) as a human-made construction. The invisible division between time zones tend to follow the boundaries of countries and their subdivisions instead of following the longitude strictly. In some areas such as western Ireland, the division of time thus deviates from its usual route then passes around national territory.

This project uses light as a vehicle to bridge two western headlands of Ireland at midnight. The light beam strikes from one headland (0 hr) toward another over the North Atlantic Ocean (-1 hr). In a sense, it starts from today, passes through yesterday, and then returns to today again.

Hidden Island





Tide is a unique temporal environmental phenomenon, caused by combined effects of gravitational forces exerted by the Moon and the Sun, and the rotation of the Earth. Its change varies in timescales. In River Thames, the time range of tidal changes was approximately 4h 17mins during my observation, which is less than the minimum time scale that orbiting satellites can accurately describe its ebb and flow and the shifting bank line.






To refine a digital representation geographically. I used a photogrammetry technology as my measuring device to orbit and to observe the tidal changes over time. Since the optical scanning performance of the measuring tool was disturbed by the flux reflection of the flowing river and puddle surfaces, this investigation had unexpectedly revealed an emerging island that thus auto-generated from the machine’s failure / blind spot / mind.

Our landscape is being morphologically transformed by the entanglement of both environmental and technological factors in the era when technology is increasingly becoming our priority sense.

Over Here, Over There





Our increasing demand for interconnection networks such as 5G to the Internet of Things (IoT) brings on the redistribution of electromagnetic radiation that is invisible and covering our environment. The technological ambition of the IoT was intended to interlink between us and other systems in order to communicate, and to control. When a signal/message is sent out, what else does it contact?

In this project, a number of directional antennas connected with metal solution containers were set up within an urban environment. They are allow to evolve, self-organise into crystallised structural patterns depending on how it is receiving and responding to the hidden electromagnetic field propagating through space at a given time. Resembling in some way like a plant, they are inbetween of living and non-living creature subtly grown out of information that is randomly fed by human intervened ambient condition.

To rethink our relationship to the rest of our environment the concept of Equilibrium emerged, which denotes a state of an ecosystem that is decentralized in its nature by interconnecting all the participants.

The goal of this project is to include the actions of individuals that stand at the boundary between humanity and our environment, seeking to blur the humanmade and the natural world and question their difference as a whole.

This pages provides three perspectives on our relationship to - or within nature and examines the opposing ideas of «unite» and «isolate», of «inside» and «outside».
























In nature, boundarie exists and operates dependently. they act not only as a barrier but also a filter, close and open according to certain ambient conditions. Essencially, the boundary has a dual-property of both separation and a combination.

A new perspective might arise from studying biological membranes as mechanisms of exchange and transference. For landscape architect James Corner,

rather than separating boundaries, borders are dynamic membranes through which interactions and diverse transformations occur. In ecological terms, the edge is always the most lively and rich place because it is where the occupants and forces of one system meet and interact with those from another.

Corners method of field operations “enable alternative ideas and effects to be played out through conventional filters and provide ways in which borders (and differences) may be respected and sustained, while potentially productive forces on either side may be brought together into newly created relationships. Thus, we shift
from a world of stable geometric boundaries and distinctions to one of multidimensional transference and network effects.

One aspect of architecutral pratice is seperating space in to habitable and inhabitable space. therefore architecture neccissarily has to deal with the concepts of connecting and dividing. This separation visualises our relationship with nature through our concepts of property. Our home is desigend as one that is devided from nature. It is designed to withstand natural influcences, to protect us from their unpredictability. Architecture offers us a space of predictability.

This installation creates a tunnel connecting the «outsides» to each other, using built forms as a vehicle for deconstructing and reconstructing our physical and psychological perception of our habitations, beyond sovereignty and property. To rethink our built environment and to propose a possibility of coexistence with the non-human by narrowing the boundaries between «inside» and «outside», blurring the barrier between «over here» and «over there».
































































 
Equilibrium / « Tunnel - W140NH Sinclair Road »

seeks to identify the common ground shared between humans and nature and use the environment to shape a peaceful coexistence / convergence and solidarity between the two.

After linking two windows, certain conditions changed in that space, such as the utility of the living space (movement, rearrangement to remain functional), the change in atmosphere (fall of temperature, feeling less secure) and the clear boundary between «inside» and «outside».

Rethinking Environmental Sensing with Aerocene




Aerocene is a series of experiments launched by Argentinian artist Tomás Saraceno with airborne sculptures aiming to explore the possibility of environmental sensing. Mobile structures made of black plastic membrane, like a bloom. It applies atmospheric physics principles that rely on solar radiation from the sun during the day, and infrared from the surface of the Earth at night. Its inflatable technology with zero carbon emission for air transportation allows the sculptures to be navigated solely by atmospheric currents.

The balloon-like sculpture which is as light as air, and is surrounded by air. Essentially, the structure itself could be viewed as just another type of air driven by atmospheric currents. But the thin film on the structure’s surface turns the air into a tangible object, therefore it may require a permission for crossing the border. After reporting to the air traffic control between countries, the floating structure (83AQI) was free from borders. It launched from Munich, Germany, on 10 September 2019 at 5:23, flew 247.9 miles and came back down to the Earth on the same day, in the evening near Sloupnice, the Czech Republic, at 19:45.


As with the film on the surface of the sculpture makes a clear air division but allows solar radiation to infiltrate, the concept of division can also be regarded as political affairs. Demarcations such as border (geopolitical boundaries) and airspace (a portion of the atmosphere controlled by a country above its territory). To cross these boundaries requires a hierarchical authorisation. They are human made subdivisions over the natural environment, open and close to a certain condition.

Here, the boundaries whether visible or invisible, they stand at the intersection of connection-division, and block-osmosis. Due to this indefinite boundary shift, we are potentially displacing the localities between ‘over here’ and ‘over there’, reverse ‘inside’ and ‘outside’.
