Entrance is the first work of the series Samsara, which has various layers of meanings.  One of the meanings of the word Samsara is a cycle of existence. What does it mean to exist? Or to vanish? Entrance investigates the cycle of lives in a man-made digital sea of the galaxy. Entrance is a lightbox but it is encouraged to view it as a painting or a series of moving images of moving lights. The main compositions of the lightbox consist of spray paint on a plastic sheet led lights and a circuit board. A distance sensor is also affixed at the bottom of the device to detect the presence of viewers.  The colors of LEDs change from the look of a splash of blood to a view of cosmos world depend on the distance of viewers.

《Entrance》是《Samsara》系列的第一个作品,具有各种层次的意义。 “Samsara(轮回)”一词的含义之一是存在的循环。 存在意味着什么? 还是消失?《Entrance》调查了人造数字银河系海洋中的生命周期。 《Entrance》是一个灯箱,但鼓励将其视为一幅画或一系列移动灯的动态图像。 灯箱的主要成分包括塑料片led灯和电路板上的喷漆。 距离传感器也固定在设备的底部,以检测观众的存在。取决于观众的距离,LED的颜色从血液的外观变为宇宙世界的视角。
