Pump is one of the art works at Cho’s Tainan studio.
Pump, the latest 3D art works at Cho’s Tainan studio, is inspired by human being’s heart, the center of the cardiovascular system, which pumps blood and then sends blood through vessels to the rest of the body. Layers and concentric rings catch viewer’s sight toward the center of this work; then the sight will flow to every corner of the studio by the architectural lines with speedy sense. Cho said, “I expect this artwork will create a center and a focus of our visual sight at the open space.”

Icons of Pump came from the energetic New York Collection of Cho’s eponymous brand. The Circle structure makes diverse patterns and concentric ring overlapped and intertwined and creates a various and dynamic overall image. In addition, the height and depth differences let the audience’s sight indulge in the abstract vision and experience different senses and feelings. Echoing the city landscape, Pump reaches a perfect balance.
