The work "The Air on the Mountaintop is Thin and Tenuous, the World at the Foot of the Mountain is as Heavy as Aluminium, Nothing Can Pierce Through." explores the existence state in a society and how an individual feels detached in a collective, thinking about his own weight and supports of others. While for human this suspended state reflects the ideological intervention in the daily life. In the state of life with the collective consciousness we unconsciously leave traces of little actions we've made. They are exposed or still hidden around us. These actions are designed to change the aura around each person and the shape of each individual. Meanwhile, they imply the effective control of the passive behavior by the controllers and their confidence to do so.
