Bridge is an installation made of 1,364 Chinese ceramic soup spoons suspended in the air to form a floating representation of a typical Chinese three-arched bridge. The stone-arched bridge is the most common type one sees in China. In formal garden design, an arched bridge is placed so that it is reflected in still water. The symbolism of the bridge is a broad topic that can be explored from many perspectives. The bridge can be actual or abstract; it can function as transit between two worlds, a sentimental link between two communities, a passage of knowing and discovering oneself and the world. A bridge connects two continents, yet it belongs to nowhere. The bridge is a place between worlds, neither one nor the other. Standing on the bridge, one can have a different perspective. It’s a space in between, and a space beyond. It could represent transformation—you are not the same person who crossed from the other side. I view myself as a bridge linking two cultures together, forever suspended and never really crossed.
