The Celebration of Life

Song of Life, Uninterrupted

Gene transfer is the primary task carried on inside the Academia Sinica Greenhouse. It pushes our understanding of evolution forward through the work of continuous experiments, observations and validations. With two different materials, the artwork conveys the richness and relentless pursuit of life. There is a dialogue over time between the seven-color spectrum from photosynthesis and the growth of plants. Steps of tests and verifications constitute the daily life of scientific research. 

The work is a complex of irregular shapes and materials reflects the rhythm of life. Terracotta relief act as an embodiment of humanity and evolutional surprises in the form of flora; the reflective features of metal creates the space of dancing lights and their colors. The work celebrates the joy of life and expresses it to the audience though visual inspiration.
