"The Chair" comes from an idea I had when I was little. I went outside to collect a lot of discarded cables and stealthily pulled out Mercedes-Benz badge from a Benz car. Later, I went home and put the chair upside down, decorating it with cables and the badge. I sat in the chair for a whole night. At that moment I believed that I had made a time machine.

The event has been hovering around my mind for a long time. The desire of being an artist perfectly motivates me to do this work again. The chair may be a real time machine. At least through the process of reproduction, it connects my childhood and the present. By means of being positioned as an art work, the trip from my studio to the gallery literally becomes my time travel in reality.

In this work, I am always interested in the part of A-side. In fact, it is the making of C-side, which comprises barren routine and unnecessary events. I want this kind of boring video.
