A Yang-Sun turns into a Yin-Moon both separated by the Taiji, 2017.
This image explores the ancient concept of Yin and Yang, two contrasting but also complimentary forces that interconnect to form a oneness. They ultimately describe duality not opposition: one cannot exist without the other. When both are in balance, harmony exists and oneness remains. When one predominates, the other is weakened and oneness is lost. The original image is split into a colored and a black-and-white part separated by a thin line. While the Sun in the colored part symbolizes Yang, it turns into a Yin-Moon in the black-and-white part. The line represents the Taiji, a border separating Yin and Yang and thereby erst creating duality.
