We use "Hu Lun" as the theme of the name. Everything is flexible, we explain the macroscopic world, let people feel the mysteries that exist during the period, but they only touch the surface, and the so-called explanation has no end. As an individual, it is in the world, not obsessed with details, does not care about form, between all things, everywhere, unpredictable, unable to follow.
Between Folds is a project made in 2021. This is one of the tests for the original video exhibited in and/and/and—NSCAD MFA Group Show. In this project, the paper treated with sensitizer was folded 128 times with replicated form, then exposed to the sun to reveal the shapes of the fold, as well as the pattern of the shade. To explore the internal relationship between shapes, the original piece was scanned and divided into numerous segments according to the baseline produced during folding, and then set into a sequence of video frames. When a story is being told, it is manipulated with the ideology and techniques. Some parts of the material of story-telling are emphasized while others are weakened or cancelled. This piece was an experiment in the structure of narrative. It used the gesture of unfolding in metaphor to reveal the full aspect of an event. By showing both the hidden and the exposed in a creative activity, Between Folds assembled a structure of storytelling that communicates the dominant and the invisible synchronously, which was considered as the narrative without any manipulation. Actually, this effort of cancelling manipulation is invalid. It shows us that the encounter of narrative is always planed. Eventually, this piece asked a question about morality: to what extend can we manipulate a narrative and still maintain the insight of truth?
The originally flat skin has been given a second life, carrying the admiration of nature to form a beautiful time specimen. Time will only take away their bodies, and the beauty from nature has never changed.
When I studied in New York, to get to my school from home, I had to pass through a small cemetery squeezed in between the sky-crappers of Manhattan. The iron gate was locked all year round, the graves were covered with withered weed, no one had ever cleaned them. Passing by the cemetery again after a cold winter, I heard joyful chirps. I looked at the ruined stone tablets, recalling a piece of Chinese lyrics from a thousand years ago:
A feast in springtime,
I sing a line of song everytime I drink a cup of wine.
Then I bow to make three wishes:
Firstly, I wish you a long, long life.
Secondly, I wish eternal health to be with me.
Thirdly, I wish we live as the swallows on the roof-beam,
The Way Forward is my view of the process of evolution.
If survival and continuity are considered as the evolutionary level of a race, human beings are undoubtedly the most successful race on the planet. Now, because of the needs of their own social development, "equality" as the fruit of the modern European proletariat revolution, has taken root in the whole world, we all look forward to the establishment of a world where all people are equal, and believe that it must be a beautiful world.
Humans, the natural enemy of almost all animals, are beginning to try to share this equality with them. Over the course of human evolution, every technological and institutional leap has been associated with the accumulation of material wealth, much of it in exchange for the lives of animals.
"Equality" seems to have never occurred in evolution, and as far as we can see, we are on a evolutionary path paved by other species, never ending,never resting.
