He zhi chu, romanised Chinese for “at the river’s beginning” references 河图. Made shortly after the artist’s visit to the Yellow River in Yinchuan, the work consists of 16 varying hollow and filled dots. The dots are arranged randomly using computational algorithm, suggesting an encryption process. Conceived as infinitely scalable, the implication is of a work whose full entity can never be completed, nor can it ever be grasped in full view. Its presence as a print and as space take place alternatingly, and at once. Operating in between reading and sensing, coding and writing, the work emerged as a way to inscribe new formal and spatial meanings.
