《Remains of the Day》
Conceptual landscape, I can only describe it from the footprints, memories and imagination of my body and experience. Ten years is a journey of negotiation with time. The past will become a part of the future. It’s just that I recorded the landscapes ten years ago and looked them back ten years later. Looking back now, my experience from youth to adulthood is more like twilight contemplation. The misty shadows of reality are more intense, reflecting the ever-changing colors in the twilight.
