Four-part videos together record and present the entire blooming process of Epiphyllum. The Epiphyllum opens slightly and slowly. The flower diameter is getting redder and thicker, and the bud is unfolding with quiver. The flower seems to force in an animalized way. And the rhythm of life is visible in the blooming process. (01 is placed near the door of the exhibition hall in this exhibition, just like the preface and beginning of a novel.)

Indeed, the exhibition has two frameworks. If the exhibition is taken as an essay, the works can be approximately divided into two themes tangled with each other: one is intermittency, the other one is the fleeting life. It can be seen clearly from the location map that some works are talking about life and death, and some are talking about chanciness. The common ground of all works is time. Or put it another way, for my camera, time looks as if it exists but spirals at the same place, signifying nothing.
