I was inspired by Albert Einstein's famous general theory of relativity, published in 1916. Einstein asserted that the “warping effect of gravity does not just affect space, but also time”. I created this work above a heating plate, imagining each piece of thermal paper as a universe. By folding and bending them, I made a black and white collage. As you can see, the uneven black colour could be a clue, hinting that in the traces of temperature changing, space warping, and time passing, this is actually more than a 2D work. I was aiming to awaken the viewer's sense of the dimension they live in, then encourage them to feel the larger universe around themselves.
