Beyond the fantasy

CEAC, Xiamen, China

In the recent year, my work has got more to do with what I read and see every day from the internet. Time constituted by every day as one unit —-showing all different messages —– makes me excited, yet bored; at the same time, I get a strange experience regarding my awareness of the reality. Perception of any matters from the perspective of time, the conflicting of meanings such as: importance and unimportance, heavy and light, sadness and pleasantness, meaning and meaninglessness…etc. is always changing, like moving the position when one keeps walking step by step, sometimes their relationship can be even turned out to be another way around. All the matters become the fragments with the elapse of time. Time, in a more democratic approach, rearrange their position and spread out to all directions in terms of meaning and meaninglessness. To me, it seems that they go beyond any fantasy coming from one’s brain; therefore, anyone can tell his or her own story through personal experience.
