H

2009/2010

site-specific installation

tram stop sign H, hole, title plate, blocked window and metal pipe(30cm)

There was a small hole on the wall.  When audience(s) looked though the hole, they would find an Alphabet “H” inside that was actually the sign of a tram stop locating at the front of the window that had been blocked by the wall.  The trick behind of the wall was simple, the depth of the small hole was long( about 30cm) and its angle aimed towards the tram sign.

Through this interventional installation, the common tram sign “H” would appear on audience’s views as unexpected new object despite the fact the sign “H” had been there for a long time.
