Name & Concept of Artwork 作品名稱與設計理念
Concept of artwork 設計理念:
Everyday, we live our lives intensely in order to live 'well', relinquishing our present selves for the sake of the future. But I have a question. Could these efforts be turning us into illusory phantoms rather than something real? The vessels and the nameless people in the red room created for this work are like us. The figures which remain extracted from a cast or mould, the vessels which bear traces of the maker's physical self are all images of a mere outer shell. I hope my red room will be a chance for people to reflect on their lives within modern society, going 'round and round' as if on a treadmill.
