“Why couldn’t we have the windows of our living room open onto a diorama, representing a beautiful landscape.… It would be wonderful to change the view from one’s window once a month—to go from Rome to Naples, from Naples to Messina, or wherever we like, without having to move.”

-Théophile Gautier

The second floor is a site-specific installation that explores the architecture through the light and the shadow. Architecture brings to light over time as the audience moves through it. The eighth wall spaces served as hidden image/ history covered by curtains. The audience are encouraged to uncover the covered the shadowed. 

“Space appears as a realm of objectivity, yet it exists in a social sense only for activity: for (and by virtue of) walking or riding on horseback, or traveling by car, boat, train, plane, or some other means. In one sense, then, space proposes homologous paths to choose from, while in another sense it invests particular paths with special value.”

-Henri Lefebvre The Production of Space

Hypothesis Atlas Voyager is the history of socializing, the space that housed the social events, and the sight-seeing of architecture and film. The exhibition space housed two floors/chapters of travelogue. On the first floor, Tzu-Huan Lin will debut an intricate new video work entitled Hypothesis Voyager. The video opening with a gallery social scene through the viewfinder, point out the first-person view that associated with the spectator. Then the story turns into discovering the history of the first human shelter that held the social events. Through the shift of the way we see art, the narrator travels us to the gallery and the loop we all faced. To escape, the time froze, the artist takes a deep look into the story of volcano mt. Vesuvius and sees the crater from a historical and mythology perspective of how it formed. The artists' camera becomes the vehicle voyage the viewer through time and space. The narrator travels the audience with her emotions that served as the passages connect each chamber by making the tour and detours.
