The beginning of this universe might have been the end of another universe. I have found a proximity relationship between the explosion of fluorescent lamps and Big Bang cosmology. In this work, the broken florescent lights represent the aftermath left in outer space created by the Big Bang, in other words, stars and beings. Inside the fluorescent tubes is a high vacuum for the electricity discharge to occur, so the phenomenon of these tubes breaking is similar to the beginning of this universe. Therefore, the broken tubes (a kind of “annihilation”) may become a metaphor for the beginning of the universe (“generation”). This work is “generated” (created) by “annihilation” (demolition), and it may represent the ambiguous event (process of making art work). For this work specially, I designed the whole shape of installation to be circular for the metaphor of the symbol of universe which is discontinuously varying.
