An Attempt at Exhausting an Unknown Place (Taoyuan, Taiwan)

途境 | 桃園

Ink on paper, wood, plexiglass; 279X279X110cm


Begun in 2014, the Attempts at exhausting a place series questions how we read the cityscape through Google Street-View. As we sit in front of the computer, a fragmented space is revealed by the light of the screen while the sliding of the mouse replaces our own movement. In the work, the movement of time reappears - similarly as time passes when reading a comic - through the arrangement of the script prepared by Google drawn into the map used in this series. Here, the map appears as open windows, multiple perspectives, to simulate the movement, as well in time as in space.
