万華鏡 #2

The kaleidoscope contains small pieces of my old photos. This record of my works is transformed into a colorful painting within this enclosed space.
The images blend together like a living creature inside the infinite world of the kaleidoscope.
The result is the beautiful creation of a drama.

When I see something in common among the various themes and concepts behind works that use a variety of materials, I am reminded of a kaleidoscope.
I think this approach - developing from my life-long attachment to the arts - is to create individual items from a dream state.

Cai Guo-Qiang, September 2001
