"And, Um, This... Is How Long Humans Have Been Here."

Dimension Variable
Wooden sandplay-box table, wooden shelf, non-manmade objects

The audience is welcomed to bring the objects from the shelf and play on the table.

The title of this work is a quote from a film <Birdman, 2014>. There is a scene where Sam tries to explain to Riggan how short a time humans have been on the earth that our ego and self-obsession is worthless. By playing around with natural objects on a sandplay box, people can also unconsciously realise how it’s not worth focusing on themselves while we haven’t been here for a long time that under the shadow of nature, all the thoughts and diseases can be seen as a tiny dust.
