Breaking the Normal Flow of Time / 2021
With disconnected electrical cords, the work Breaking the Normal Flow of Time (2021) conveys an imaginative sudden cut off from the electricity supply, which leads to a slowing down of the accelerating technology life in our time. Electricity also connects our mind and body, inspired by EMS body massage pads, through electric stimulation, the muscle reacts without our own will. Resting in a relaxing posture with the massage pads sticking on the back, I pondered about the magic of electrical signals that facilitate communication in the brain. Our brain is run by a small voltage since the day we were foetus, neurones actually carried out this process of generating electrical signals. These signals come in the form of a chemical substance called neurotransmitters. The interest on the miracle of electricity also coincidently echoes to my favourite TV show in the 90s, the "Twin Peaks", directed by David Lynch and Mark Frost, where a motif of E-LEC-TRICI-TY, a predominant binding force, connects and reconnects everything. The realities, unknown dimensions, fantasies and consciousness.
