Half-Field Plan

January 2019, Art Museum of China Academy of Fine Arts, Hangzhou, China


This plan is initiated from a concept of land division. We can see the land boundaries from the map,as a boundary is created while the land is being redefined. “Half-Field Plan” is an activity of highlighting the space that between the boundaries. Let’s say, when a land has been divided into land A and land B, the boundaries of these two lands are not intersected but are separated and are part of their own land. Therefore, the space that between land A and land B is not equal to zero, but tend to zero. Thus, every time when we are dividing the land, this kind of space will be appeared at the same time.

“Half-Field Plan” is using these spaces for planning, to implement a plan of giving names. In the plan, participants can name any space that between the boundaries and mark them on the map, which gives an existence to those invisible space.
