Silk, cocoons

Silkworm [蚕tsan]: the medium through which Liang comprehends the world
Broken / incomplete [残tsan]: a state or sense of deficiency contributed by the loss of Chinese traditional culture
Zen [禅chan]: a school of Mahayana Buddhism that originated in China during the Tang Dynasty; also refers to Liang’s “quietly meditate”

A fine and delicate piece of silk tumbled in a cascade from the ceiling like a waterfall. What stands aside is a piece of old wood covered with silk. With philosophy and a tinge of nature, Liang builds a poetic landscape painting into physical where for audience to meditate.
  
While spinning, silkworms left everywhere on the silk with their faeces and urine which however were kept in their natural form by Liang. Those little black dots, yellow and pale brown marks, together with silk, paint a scroll of abstract painting. Applying the laws of nature, Liang inventively creates a unique landscape depicting silkworms’ adventures and life circle, as well as reminding the destruction of Chinese landscape caused by human activities and natural disasters.
