"This work uses still photos to create moving images through two different methods and displays them on a pedestal constructed by outdated analogue devices. A Greek god and a goddess (Hermes and Aphrodite) are used as images, and Greek mythology and Chinese folklore are combined in the artist's own narrative. The work attempts to cross different timelines, different spatial positions, different characters, between reality and legend, between desire and information, describing a relationship that is always present, inseparable but forcedly opposed."
