Hualien Stone Sculpture Museum


The piece, Whirl, is a rough stone surface that features a smooth swirl that penetrates the core of the stone. Gazing into the swirl is like taking a journey down a whirlpool to enter a beautiful and fantastical realm. The down ward spiraling whirlpool is reminiscent of a fossil. The swirl reaches the inner core of the store. Inside the swirl, the gradient of shades create an illusion of yet another swirl, revealing all dimensions and curvatures of the stone. The work guides viewers to gaze into the swirl and into the stone. As the viewers are captivated by the many swirls, they feels as if they have been sucked into a black hole.
