the suspended time

the suspended time

This is a daily project I have been doing since last year. A sheet of paper be gridded into 30/31 boxes, each box represents one day. Each day I illustrate my feelings in one box by using metaphorical symbols to record and preserve time on paper. This is a way for me to conquer the fear of passing time.

Time, space, consciousness and unconsciousness, permanent and impermanent are the concepts that I am interested in.

I illustrate in order to preserve the time.

This project has two forms, one is drawing on paper, the other is a projection on wall, see links below:
