Shining Afternoons, 2017




“Shining Afternoons” presents a library of specimen slides, compiling a collection of edible plants from my grandmother’s garden. The installation has a built-in function where viewers can enhance their own phone camera into a microscope, to deeper observe these specimens. The structure also presents a pulley system in which a live-feed camera is attached, where the viewers are able to raise to observe the gardens growing upon each layer of the three covering tarps. Thinking about the impermanence of immigrant “home” and the role of the caretaker, this installation focuses on the process of observing decay, the effort of prolonging life and its ephemerality.
