Works statement:
Chinese folk superstitions use cups, rice, and cloth to retrieve the souls of those who lost their souls after being frightened by accident. In today's social environment, where material and utilitarianism are paramount, collective social anxiety has also promoted a large number of people who "lost their souls." Where lies those depressed or forgotten souls behind the prosperity of society? So I used this method to collect souls at the scene of life. I looked for alternative materials for cloth, cups, and rice in the city. Through the concept orientation, I changed the original state of the material and redefined the original nature of the material. The whole concept was divided into materials, experimental actions, time, and space. The questions it discussed were thrown through the choice of production methods and materials. The final work was only the final condensed state, and even a lie was described.
