OriginChinese Spirit Money by Beili Liu

In Chinese tradition, spirit money is burnt for ancestors and spirits in the afterworld as an offering. Origin is made from hundreds of rolls of spirit money; half of these rolls are with the rich and warm texture of the spirit money, shimmers of silver and gold, the other half charred black. The circle brings together the solid and the void, the present and the absent into one complete whole, and alludes to the balance and linkage between the current world and the afterworld.
