When we come back from a journey, we tend to notice how much little has changed and feel as if we never left. For his undergraduate senior thesis, Lawrence Cheung was trying to convey an abstract idea on how a space can be created based on the notion of traveling to and back from a distant place within a short period of time.

Over the years, Lawrence has made a collection of sketchbooks that continue to document his curiosities with spatial and temporal displacement as well as the Big Bang Theory, the connectivity of all things big and small, and the precession of the equinoxes. This also led him to become interested in archaeoastronomy, the study about how ancient monuments were built in alignment to the stars or to the rising points of the sun. Such important examples are Stonehenge, the Pyramids of Giza, the Mayan temples, and James Turrell's Roden Crater project in Arizona.
