Artist Statement
“Due to the one child only policy in China, I am the core part of my family. I didn’t know anything about SHARE and why I have to share when I was a kid, basically I get whatever I want. The feelings I have is affected by my family.
Everybody should realize that each of us has this kind of power to affect people. In this project, I want to express that we should cherish people who are always around us to support us. But we should also know that sometimes, no matter how hard we try, we have to let something go. We can’t fight against a lot of things, like death. So when that happened, all we can do is move forward and make new relationships.”
