The work, entitled A Falling Ceiling, is a further creation of the workTheNoise From Ceiling(2012),was exhibited in the group exhibition "Black Hole of Freedom" held by Jimei Doushan Art Museum in 2017.
This work is a semi-open immersion installation with combination of photography, laser light and video, presenting two different visual dimensions of light in one space.
The first version was presented in 2012. In this version, I extracted a photo which showed a hinged spotlight suspended in an uncertain blue-black space from the previous, and printed it on stick board and cut into two pieces from the horizon line inside the image. When hanging, the horizon line in the photo paralleled with the actual horizon, and a horizontal laser beam was passing through the gap, appeared as an intruder, which formed visual effect that this beam was cutting the photo and all the objects inside exhibition space including the audiences. Behind the suspended photo, a documentary about the performance in 2012 was broadcasting.
The emphasis of constructing this installation was its psychological implication. As long as the audiences entered the exhibition space, they inevitably contacted with the line of laser beam, which revealed the existent of real wall and the invisible wall inside urbanites.
