Tatsuo Miyajima's New Large-Scale Public Light Installation at Art Basel

E-FLUX
"Floating Time" (2011) by Tatsuo Miyajima
Internationally acclaimed Japanese artist Tatsuo Miyajima will present a new large-scale public light installation during Art Basel's show in Hong Kong this March. Each night from March 21 to 26, Time Waterfall will be shown across the entire fa├žade of Hong Kong's iconic 490 meter high International Commerce Centre (ICC) on the Kowloon harbor front. Time Waterfall is a new work by the artist which aims to convey the eternal luminance of human life, expressing an ethos of "living in the present." The work will comprise the natural numbers one to nine, which will cascade down the face of the ICC, while never reaching zero. [link]
