Exhibition Statement

In this human-dominated world, what dominates us?
Suppose time simply flowed in one direction at a constant speed. The nature of universe would be stable and linear.
And yet the space, as we understand it, exists beyond reality.

Far beyond our own galaxy, the Dumbbell Nebula (M27) is estimated to be 1,200 light-years away from Earth. The Andromeda Galaxy (M31) 2.5 million light-years away. The Southern Pinwheel Galaxy (M83) 15 million light-years away.
That is to say, we see M27 as it was 1200 years ago, see M31 as it was 2.5 million years ago, and see M83 as it was 15 million years ago.

It is like a man of Han Dynasty, a man of Tang Dynasty and a man of Qing Dynasty present at the same time.

We live in unreality.

SPEED defines our view of time and space.
From zero to the speed of light is our conception of time and space.

Above that range is hyperphysical.
Below that range is negative matter.

SPEED generates TIME.

SPEED has changed the way we think.
