At Dawn, at Dusk 再黎明,再黄昏

     The time difference is a gift from the Sun. Inspired by the idea of presenting two time zones from two localities in one space, the installation creates a supernatural space-time interaction that defies rules. Enchanted by the Sun Path, the artist Jiayu Liu translates tangible elements into abstract light effects, entailing Sun’s movement across different locations.


     The work responds to Acqua Di Parma’s selection of two locations for the new scents, consisting of an ambient lightscape and traces of natural scenes from Italy and Laos. Both realized through projection, they are situated in a cylindrical container where the wall becomes an END-LESS canvas. The light-scape presents both sunrise in Italy and sunset in Laos on the same canvas. The complicated color play was generated from real-time captures of sunlight data and extracted topographies in Unity 3D, which were then fed into TouchDesigner for dynamic motion graphics. Scanning across the light-scape on the canvas, two strips of projection also lead us into an exploration of natural scenes. In the middle of the exhibition,  a clock-shaped arrangement presents Acqua Di Parma’s scents, symbolizing a connection between Italy, Laos, and China and embracing the time differences given by the Sun.
