Nick Dong: Spiritual Fluid

February 2017


In light of the Big Bang Theory of the creation of the universe, Nick Dong is inspired to consider the very moment after violent explosion. The new works in Spiritual Fluidcontinue Dong’s Cosmic Dance series, a body of work that incorporates levitation technology, original music, and movement. For the artist, scientific and cosmic themes can also correlate to human relationships and spirituality. www.studiodong.com
