Artist Statement:
Sometimes I fall into a pit which is on the boundary between reality and dream.
When you at the supermarket, what if a chicken hatches in a package of eggs? When you in the subway, you might realize that instead of the train, it is the pratform that is moving. Who can tell? Daily life has a lot of opportunity for one to enjoy such imagination. I call it the pit one’s daily life. Inside is always strange, funny and uncanny.
After enjoying the experience, I made one for someone else to fall into.
