The making of Poetic Stones - Sunny Wang
The Poetic Stones installation is based on Chinese ancient poems Ten Ox Herding Pictures. The installation is analogous to the rhythms/tones from the structure of the poems, and simplifies them into calligraphic lines and circles to compose the meaning abstractly.
As the gesture of calligraphy cannot ever be repeated, the act of glass-blowing cannot be reversed. The glass installation invites the viewer to be totally present and in the moment. As in her other installation works, Sunny Wang hopes to offer to viewers a tranquil time-space, an opening toward inner peace and harmony.
