"Fortune" (green rings) extracts jade ring as an independent visual element, through the deformation, repetition and superposition of the abstract pattern, a centrifugal illusion is formed, showing a vortex-like depth of space. This visual vortex alludes to the states of globalization. Just as globalization has dispelled matter and its inherent ideology, the spiral formed by concentric jade rings transforms the solid and eternal object into a perceptional black hole; on the other hand, it also reflects the cultural meaning of the original jade ring, which is the cosmic view of the worship of Sun and Moon divinities. From the Neolithic age, this traditional sacrificial ritual has concentrated the evolution of human culture and ideology for more than thousands of years, and has been alienated in this work into a new object with both abstract and representational features.
