A visual tale in porcelain which playfully engages with the notion of time and space. The works follow eight friends who represent eight phases of the moon and the notion of passing time. The characters travel through the seasons, and along their journey, they encounter different representations of the history of philosophical thought on the nature of time and space.
If time and space, as sages say, Are things which cannot be,
The sun which does not feel decay No greater is than we.
So why, Love, should we ever pray To live a century?
The butterfly that lives a day Has lived eternity.
T.S. Eliot, “A Lyric”
