The Poem of Chaos is an architectural projection film that I was invited to create for the Silos Museum of Art this summer. In this work, I continually design the Mandelbrot Set and digital dancer; it builds on my previous work to create a new piece that incorporates Stravinsky's Spring Festival theme. The work was projected on the building façade of Shenzhen's the Silos Art Museum in July 2022.


Architecture = Stage

This exhibition at the silo is divided into two parts: the inside and the outside. I am primarily responsible for creating the projections for the outside and assisting with the projections inside the building.

In this project, I viewed the entire silo as a huge real-life "stage." For the projection on the outdoor façade, I placed two dancers moving on the stage; the audience stood outside the silo and watched the performance as onlookers. As they step inside, the interior projection follows the story of the two dancers outside. And because the silo is cylindrical, the projection of the interior image circles the audience. Viewers enter the building as if they are stepping onto the stage alongside the dancers. In doing so, they are transformed from spectators to participants. This concept was unanimously approved by my clients.

Poetry of Spring

Inspired by Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, this scene depicts a magnificent festival: Dancers fete the spirits of nature through dance on the stage. It is divided into four main sections.

In Pina Bausch's rendition of The Rite of Spring, a young girl dressed in red is chosen to dance continuously until her death, in full view of the crowd. This scene is designed to reference the plot of this myth, with countless people in the background holding out their fingers to the stage in the foreground. The dancers begin rising from the stage as blue fractal shapes slowly appear.

The chosen maiden raises her hands in the air, confused by her impending fate. She is clothed in a green gown and wears a sprouting branch on her head, surrounded by butterflies—aspects symbolizing the breath of spring.

Multiple dancers stand in a row, clad in green gauze. They are spinning and dancing to accompany this ritual.

The dancer moves on the stage alongside fractal shapes and nature.
Architectural Projection
The location of this architectural projection is the Silos Art Museum in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province. The museum was formerly an abandoned factory; L&A GROUP purchased the building and transformed it into an art museum. The location is characterized by four connected cylindrical silos. With this in mind, I made some changes to the film while designing the architectural projection to ensure that it complemented the structure.

I designed the film to be axisymmetric, ensuring that the dancers are in the front of each silo when they dance. This prevents them from being projected into the gaps between silos.
