Burnt Sun X Projections of Time-Light
2019 政大駐校展覽｜與駐校剪紙藝術家 Tim Budden 共同創作｜ 展出於政大藝文中心4F｜Video Installation｜Color｜3m 40s Loop
The 19th NCCU Artists-in-Residence Program “The Fourth Person of Paper” facilitated the art collaboration between "Burnt Sun", a large-scale paper-cut work by Tim Budden and a companion multimedia installation "Projections of Time-Light" by Ho-Ting Wei. The works were exhibited together at the NCCU Art & Cultural Center.
"Burnt Sun" utilized the Chinese latticework design from traditional wooden windows and screens and used the burning method to symbolize the transformation of life. The artwork hanged in the air for display, which allowed viewers to observe the texture of the paper as well as the changes of light and shadow from different distances and angles.

“Projections of Time-Light” is a multimedia circular projection on a paper-cut work measuring four-by-four meters. The projections into the cut-out paper disperse the light as different element segments move across. The colorful shadow also helps create a three-dimensional space.
The project found its first conception in the use of fire as a key element in “Burnt Sun”. The video focused on the four basic elements (Earth, Water, Fire, and Wind) to produce images with distinctive colors, patterns, movements, and timing to suggest – through the repeated appearance and disappearance of images as light and shadow follow one another – the eternal interconnectedness between life and death in nature.
