Jerome Chia-Horng Lin, ‘Either Right or Left’, 2013, East Gallery

We often see water dripping from above into a pond, pool or other body of water. In this phenomenon, the flowing direction is determined by the gravity of the earth which appears to be downwards. What if there are two gravitational forces drawing water drops towards both right and left sides, then what would you see? Artist thinks there are many ways to interpret this dichotomy. You could see it as two powers fighting against each other. You could also see it as a mechanism to balance both forces in the world. The water forms on both sides remain still for a while, then they start to shake and entwine with each other due to the gravity relocation. The balance will be reached when the changes are done. Either still or moving is essential elements to create the state of balance. In the end of animation, water ponds exchange their positions completely. It may appear the same to the audience. As a matter of fact, these two ponds contain different content of water. He tries to offer my audience a visual experience that you may look at this animation in any direction. This animation has been selected in the 3rd edition of MashRome Film Fest in Rome, It is screening at the Ara Pacis Museum at June.2014
