Outdoors / The Kite Knows Where I Go
An exploration to trace the sensation and perception of awe through flying a kite.
The kite was a medium to trace the path and represent the sensation of awe, an emotion that usually leads me to a diminished self-perception and a sense of connection to the larger part of the world. Pulling the string to seize the tension against the wind, and staring at the kite as a roaming dot in the vast sky, I connected with the kite and tried to communicate with a larger power separate from myself. Through active research practices to deduce the perception, and experimentations with the sound and light to externalize the sensation, I reconstruct the process of flying a kite to reacquire awe and a more intimate relationship between myself and the surrounding space, time, and people.
