Intertwined, touched, detached hands and feet, talking about the relationships that I saw in the daily life, conscious and unconscious body behavior greatly affect our daily life and affect how we really get to know a person, including ourself. this specific human actions very much bring me into the sense of the particular areas of the bodies, it not a body as a whole, its the fragmentation. Freud said: “He that has eyes to see and ears to hear may convince himself that no mortal can keep a secret. If his lips are silent, he chatters with his fingertips; betrayal oozes out of him at every pore.” It seems only the body language can telling the truth about people’s thoughts. The stability and level of the tone do not make us distinguish between true and false. We are not polygraph instruments. Is that he/she is shy, is he/ she pretending to be calm, is he/she escaped something or the environment makes him/her insecure, whether they are close or not, a fingertip action, makes you can see the insight. We all have our own answers, and the importance of physical contact can not be ignored. Bones, organs, and Central Nervous System, we called command center are all under our skin, but what is beyond the skin? When we planned our actions, the brain gave clear instructions, but the subconscious may make the body react in advance. To me surface is a blurred boundaries,can’t clearly separated inside and outside. The figures that I created are based on my own reactions and the reactions of the people that I observed. The conscious and unconscious body reactions will be the important part in my works. The different communication way between East and West also give me the inspiration. The transformation of the state also affects the way people communicate and body language. In my eyes, the way East communicates with the West gives me different experiences and plays an important role in my observation. All the prints are printed by stone lithographs, Feet and hands are the symbol I use them all the time to represent the whole body, it became my own language. My own hands and feet will become the main actor to tell the story. I found my own symbols to explain the inside and outside.
