The Eclipse
The Eclipse

My mother photographs the flowers in her garden and sends them as daily digital greetings to a circle of friends and family living overseas. The artwork is a video projection capturing the eclipse of a moon constructed with the flower images of my mother’s garden.

The eclipse is a poetic interpretation of Tang Dynasty poet Li Bai’s work - Quite Night Thought (靜夜思), expressing the experience of immigration, displacement and place. It is a representation of the constant flux of our belonging and identity, morphing with personal and collective experiences. To me, the blooming moon embodies a notion of home, connections and the hope for a better future.

Similar to the various flowers in the picture, Australia embodies many diverse cultures and ethnicity. With this work I hope to resonant with people who left their homeland, just like my mother. They profoundly influenced the places and the community they live in.
