Spring: Homage to Liang Quan

Bottles of spring water from around the world were purchased from a supermarket.

The daylight condition at each of the springs, on the exact date when the water was sourced, was collected as datasets from nearby weather stations, and simulated as a sundial of light and shadow, radiating from a glass of water.

The work was first presented in an exhibition of ink painter Liang Quan, as an homage to his oeuvre. By extension, the work also pays tribute to ink painters across time, who have inspired us throughout the centuries by transforming water into art.
