 Zen – 2023
Installation view, In Another Language exhibition at Ontario Mills, Ontario, CA.

'禪 Zen' is a 2-channel sound installation that provides a momentary temple for shoppers who seek brief intervals from the business of the mall. Two speakers play a recording of Buddhist monk’s meditation in a closed-loop to soothe visitors, while the low-frequency waves phonically separate the couch area from the noises filling in the alley. This work is a metaphor for a meditative experience. In relation to Lunar New Year, which has a tradition of praying for good fortune in the upcoming days, I invocate through this work a power in us to maintain balance and pursue goals wholeheartedly for the prospective year.
