Lau Ching-wa （Hong Kong）
Glimpses is a video installation, presenting a series of changes in sunlight that the artist encountered in her studio. The artist uses four white walls to form an obscure space, with only a frosted window on the wall. The sunlight projected on it does not tell the audience where it comes from – it might be from another place, a place unknown to all of us.
From dawn to dusk, the sunlight is a hint to time. By projecting the sunlight to a frosted window from an obscure space, the light and shadow embodies a mirage – a mirage of the changes in sunlight and the lapses of time. Perhaps, the mirage, is in fact another reality.
