One 135mm disposable camera per day. 9855 films taken. 365 cameras accumulated over one year. All the films are meant to remain untouched in the camera until the day of the death of the artist, and then to be unveiled by an unknown other. The camera's blinking flash resembles the moment of death. While being sealed in the black boxes, fragmented memories become a blur as time goes by. Until the substance of life fades away, the films in these dust-laden black boxes are rediscovered through the eye of others.

The work explores the intertwined journey of memory and life. Passing through the ends/lens of life and death, a reexamination of the essence of being is made possible, as truth manifests itself only through death.
