About the Work

The Critical Mass (Inertia’s Basin) also employs the principle of sedimentation, molding a variety of formworks in sculptural and industrial construction into a synthetic hemisphere: the bell founding that often cast on site in pits and the techniques of riverbank reinforcement construction that uses reinforcement steel and concrete. Viewers are able to look at both the inside and the outside of the concrete shell; its configuration resembles the vacuum on the land slopes along the Yangtze River (Critical Mass Photo Series), or even a halved planet; for the artist, the spherical cavity also symbolizes the shape of the dam.
