The project is referring to the tarot card, XVII. The Star, a card of hope, as an extension of a previous project, Days in the Matchbox, for my year of bad luck in 2018 based on Chinese calendar. The 22 Major Arcanas is metaphorically the fool’s journey, an experience that a person must incorporate to realize their wholeness. In the deck, XVII. The Star, goes right after The Tower, to suggest a new beginning full of hope, inspirations and faith in the self after a severe shakeup. The installation presents a trilogy reflecting on my personal transnational experience, inviting the audience to a timeless water voyage.
