The concept of our suspended installation ‘The Invisible String’ by Taylor Zhou was inspired by the children’s book of the same name that Taylor reads with his daughters at bedtime to explain what love is.
The essence of the story is that we are all connected to our loved ones by an invisible string, no matter where we are. Being connected by the invisible string means no one is ever truly alone, which is an especially important message during the pandemic, where people are feeling increasingly isolated.
Taylor is an associate architect at Sybarite in London, where he has worked for just under a year. Originally from China, he has been living in the UK for the past 23 years.
