My concept of creating the sculpture "Lightspace" for the Hualien International Sculpture Symposium Taiwan in 1999 should continue opening up the development of an active process in creating a union and finding intersection points between Art, Culture and the decisive Human factor.
Therefore I open up a space within the sculpture which is consistant of two parts.
A smooth rectangular white marble body with a linear soft opening invites people to interact with their experience of space, light and movement through entering physically the piece. The carved energylines inside are shiny and polished to indicate a Union between the universal parts of human spirit and their beeing on earth.
The darkgrey to black base stone with an opening for "Lightspace" to fit in, has a natural surface , like the crust of a block, irregular size, but proportional to the piece.
As for the location of the setting of " Lightspace " I suggest to coordinate with the help of a Feng-Shui Master and his Lo Pan compass the energyconjunctions , movement of planets and magnetic correlation with the chinese calendar in order to search for an understanding of a rythm in Universe, embracing us all.
"Lightspace" should reflect a harmony of Space,Time, Univers and Life.
