In this spatial installation Tee explores the relation between actual space and the idea of mind traveling and awareness. A sense of place/belonging is a construction of the mind and is influenced by the surroundings. You are where your mind is; you can be somewhere and yet be elsewhere at the same time. The place you’re at cannot be pinned down one-dimensionally to a certain physical space. Time is an indivisible whole; the present is crystallized from the past, and also extends into the future. By meditatively exploring the constructions of the mind, they can be opened up. Awareness can thus be unfolded.
