Liang Shaoji composes a poetic "physical text" with silk and X-rays from his friends. In Breathe , cross sections of bones and organs beautifully overlap with the cloud-like traces left by silkworms as if they are breathing, or floating.
X-rays become Liang’s recent fascination. Instead of medical result indicated in the X-rays, Liang is more into presenting the breathing of life with silk thread by strengthening the scientific form. X-rays covered with silk depicts Liang’s ideas of integrating the imperceptible of eastern philosophy and the attribution of being rational of western medicine. “Observe and explore science with an artistic view, appreciating art with a perspective of life.” (Liang)
