Some dismantled pieces of electronic machinery are scattered in a corner. There is one LCD screen, like a thin black glass, laid against a broken folding chair. On the back of the chair, an alarm light keeps spinning and flashing. The light, flickering restlessly, beams through the LCD screen. Only at this moment can a spectator see the flowing image on the LCD screen. The image is one of a ray of light scanning a piece of ruined wood from top to bottom, as well as the hands moving slowly along the same wood.

The artist grafts the mechanism of the apparatus, and extends the light to the whole exhibition space. Visually, the spectators cannot read the clues by merely watching the image within the screen without perceiving the installation as a whole. The life-size hands within the image imply the spatial and cultural quality of the LCD screen through the essential transparency of the image.
