A56 Ripples of Love

Category: Installation

Artist: Chih-Chuan Lu

This work is specifically created for the themed exhibition, which a unique paper sculpture.

The vertical swan feather is at the center of the work. Its upright centeredness as well as its lightness subtly points to the essence and quality of love.

The three rings of ripples (created with recycled CDs) are multicolored, resembling the energy levels of a pyramid and referring to the four states of the universe, which are formation, existence, destruction, and emptiness. Only by returning to the feather-light center could the soul fly across the boundary of the lower universe and join again with the divine love of the higher universe.
