DARK SIDE OF THE MOON EAST

In Dark Side of the Moon, I traverse the unknown and all of its mysteries.

There is inherent contradiction in the dark side of the moon; it is at once the beginning and the end, the question and the answer. Forever evading us, the dark side of the moon creates a looming absence in which the works situate themselves.

These futuristic landscapes are informed by the technological and post-industrial advances of man. Deeply in tune to the impacts, both positive and negative, of these innovations, I play with the roles of man and machine and the waning boundary between the two. The work is ultimately a protest against the destruction of our planet and our humanity.

So far, for the Dark Side of the Moon series, I have created 36 works, 18 in Beijing, and 18 in New York. The pieces are twelve hours apart – literally, half the world away – and titled in pairs. Each “West” piece has a corresponding “East” piece, one black, one white. Thus the works become magnetic poles and the physical space between them becomes part of the work. They shall never meet – each is the other’s dark side, without hierarchy.
