Mirage Well   移 步 幻 井

Well, as one of the earliest man-made structures to access groundwater, was the first step to break the limitation of the land and explore a world beyond the plain and familiar. The circular structure of the well manifests multiple layers of semiotic meanings — it is a container, a frame, a portal to the unknown, and a reflection.

We stand inside and look at the world framed by the well; we stand above and stare down at this black hole of imaginations and unrealities.

井 ,是 源 泉 也 是 黑 洞 ,通 向 希 望 与 未 知 。

好 像 梦 中 的 传 送 门 ,一 切 都 是 失 衡 的 ,里 外 的 世 界 或 真 实 或 虚 无 ,所 有 的 丰 富 都 是 虚 幻 。 我 们 是 站 在 外 面 凝 视 井 底 的 人 ,也 是 住 在 井 里 的 人 。

Mirage Well is an immersive installation developed by Neonblack Studio. In this versatile installation with no definite form, withered trunks, light and shadow, water waves and sounds merged together to create a space where reality and imagination blend.  The giant metal ring reshapes the small, dark wellhead in life, and the light illuminates and infinitely magnifies this passage.
