This video work was created in 2017. The artist was inspiered by Thomas Cole's four pieces of paintings made in 1842, namely Childhood, Youth, Manhood, and Old Age from the The Voyage of Life series, public domain collection of the National Gallery of Art in Washington. The artist animated the journey of life through the four stages, vividly questioning how the transformations actually happened, and where the river of life lead to? How the shimmering castle of fame and honor attracts the youth? Is the angel guiding us always around us, or within ourselves? Music courtesy of Gymnopedie No. 3, free online source.
