How Could a “ ” Character be Enough? (42)
1999 ~ 2000
Magazine, 78 double pages, cover
Pen on paper

The title refers to those familiar sentences that totally reveal the emotional feelings. While at the same time, the work also exposes its boring production process, as if going against with the Chinese “De” characters on each page. In the eyes of many, such act is almost abnormal, but the artist sees it as fun. Everyday the artist does several pages and finishes the work till he gets bored. Then why the artist insists on dealing with such a character? He finds out that this character is related with the expression of rich and poor. The more the difficult in the expression will be, the more the frequent the “De” character appears.
