As Above, So Below

Death is a social construction. It informs that everyone shall choose the image to live. It’s psychologically creating the image of immortality, or, as Freud says, an illusion, which is socially powerful and vital to individuals. The Kaleido is constructed by time in its three scales. It presents a fragile vision or view that’s constantly morphing and reshaping by one’s position in time. This project attempts to question: What images have they co-constructed for the living and the society through time? How do places alter people’s perception of time?
