When the artist contemplates the world through alchemy, he discovers that black, white and gold are the three primary colors of every phenomenon, it is the chemical mixed precipitate of nature, religion, life, life and death, philosophy, science, matter, power, and reverie. The black is serenely profound and mysterious; the white is pure and void; the golden shines brilliantly with riches…when the golden genetically modified silk and silkworm cocoon got themselves intertwined in the thistle-like rusty thorns and corroded iron plate, it poses serious interrogations to many current life, life form and ethical questions.
