In Chinese philosophy before the beginning of the matter there is just nothingness – such empty that for human being it is not possible to imagine it. From this emptiness borders are being created (Xing) to make a form for the perceivable emptiness (Wu). Some of the other meanings of Xing are: “new beginning”, “to wake up” or “to conduct”. Form of the piece was inspired by the physical string theory in which collisions of the gigantic string-shaped structures give birth to the new universes operating with different dimensions and physical rules.
