I have spent countless sleepless nights in sericulture experiments in twenty years of time. When I was taking care of them, observing, and getting close to these little creatures, their murmuring and gurgling water sound of mulberry eating and silking lead me into the distance. It feels like a vast, silent and magnificent territory. I listened quietly, relieved from my life, as if I had entered a state of Zen, and this is how the work Listen to the Silkworms came into being. It closes the gap between life, production and art. When sericulture becomes "contemplation of sericulture", endless new ideas emerge, providing people in the vanity fair of the metropolis with an opportunity to return to nature and a glimmer of hope for self-salvation.

Listen to the silkworms; listen to Zen.
—Liang Shaoji
