Line Segment Series is a series of study using line segments to interpret objects, gravities and physical laws. A Big Dumb Object (BDO) is intriguing, like a black hole that drain all our curiosities inside. It’s big but simple, dumb but stay in our focus all the time, and its objective existence is unstoppable, seemingly beyond any space and time. We perceive a BDO as a disturbing UFO in “Arrival (2016)”, but the Jupiter, the marble gas dumb giant over our head, seems never disturbing us. In this project, I’m trying to moving the lens to the astrophysical world, where massive things happen silently. In this version of Silence (BDO)_2, a solar is stretched to the full size of the canvas. With the progression of code running, the solar becomes brighter and more details appears. Straight lines projected from the canvas corners also shows light sources from the horizons.
