Pumpkin, Time, Eyes
This collage work is inspired by these three key words.
Kusama’s colorful, striped pumpkin seems grow in the world of fairy tale.
And time does not exit the world of fairy tale because all the beauty would stay forever.
However, the world of fairy tale is a illusion, which only exists in our eyes, in our fantasy.
We observe the changes of people and things around us through our eyes.
But can we really distinguish between fantasy and reality?
If This Collage Is an Installation
If the collage is turned into an art installation, I would hang it on the ceiling of the teacher’s office in Moonshot Academy.
In Moonshot, everyone is trying to find a balance between ideal and reality.
We have a beautiful ideal, “to bring change to human education”, but at the same time, we also need to face and recognize the real difficulties and problems brought about by innovation.
I hope the bright and rich colors in this work can bring people with the joy of being beautiful and permanent.
But the figures of an eye, and a clock can trigger people to think about ideal and reality.
