Star of Seeing is a site-specific installation at the Surging Wave Pavilion in Suzhou. Half-hidden in the bamboo forest, the glass plate has a yellow-colored core and gradually fades until it becomes transparent at the rim, and the reflection of light on the glass changes with the weather and time of day. Star of Seeing (“Star of Confusion”) is an old Chinese translation of the word “planet”. The work traces the confusing transition of light and captures the ever-changing view with a gentle pause.

《惑星》是艺术家于苏州沧浪亭进行的特定场地创作。作品掩映于竹林之间,由中心向外渐变透明的玻璃载光面在变幻的天气和时刻里呈现出不同的相貌。“惑星”本是前人对行星的另一种译名。本作取其光线游移令人生惑之意,以轻柔的暂停为变幻的日月风光留影。
