Phekda (Tianji 天璣), named after the third star, Phekda II - Inverted Shadow 天璣II - 反映 was the second version of Phekda created at Leo Gallery in Shanghai. Inverted Shadow is a four- to five-square-meter maze built from hundreds of sheets of white paper hanging from the ceiling, with the structure accompanied by its reflection in dark water. Visitors were invited to step on cement blocks like those found on construction sites. Thus they found themselves walking through the narrow path of water, touched by soft paper on both sides of their bodies. It was like making your way through a three-dimensional ink wash painting. The path was so narrow that you could only go forward, turn without knowing where your steps would take you, and continue to the destination—also the starting point. Phekda draws attention to sky and air, which is essential for human kinds. Phekda II - Inverted Shadow raises awareness to water, which is also indispensable for human existence.
