Glass, soil, mirror, steel 
Installation: Approx. 3 1/2 ft (h) X 12 ft (l) X 2 1/2 ft (w) 
currently installed as part of "Amplified" at Queen's Botanical Garden  until September 4th 2022

As a part of the 大地肌理/Earth Skin series,  Your memory beholds molds the earth's surface with molten glass. A piece of mirror is embedded in one of the two pieces and a hand-blown glass vessel holding the earth attached to the other.  An engraving on the mirror invites viewers to smell the textures of the soil. 

Inhale from the surface of soil.
     As molecules saturate cavities 
      of your nose;
      your memory recognizes the 
      composition of earth.
