卡尔·萨根(Carl Sagan)将地球称之为“苍白的小蓝点(The Pale Blue Dot)”——“地球,一切幸福与痛苦的集合……成千种宗教信仰、意识形态、经济学说……所有的一切都维系在这个悬浮在宇宙中的小尘埃上。”人类,神圣而又渺小,坚强而又脆弱;苦苦探索着世界,尘埃一般消逝。








Carl Sagan calls Earth 'the pale blue dot'. 'The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines ... on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.'(Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot, 1994) Sacred and insignificant, staunch and fragile, human beings explore the world strenuously, and disappear like dust. 

In Beach, overlooked from high-altitude, people turn into varied-shaped dots, drifting in the ocean. Personal feelings are concealed in some kind of being with more macroscopic scale, and transform into images of a group of people whose personal differences have been stripped off - an abstract, geometrical, and pure scene.

Another work 'Islands' seems a self-conscious living organism, after the pure and neutral world has been extracted; it is strange and artless.

At the end of the exhibition hall lies a huge pure-white neon coil, like people floating in the sea,  or islands scattered in the sea.

The islands just like cells, and crowds just like islands - they are calm and clamorous, still and turbulent, mild and sensitive, scattered in the vacuum.

The stars are twinkling, and the earth taciturn.
