There are covered with cultivate soil on the exhibition ground, a picnic table in the center is placing a pot of rosemary, a plate of raw meat sealed with transparent plastic glue, and a watering kittle above. On the walls surrounding are green cement paint handprints and footprints stained by cultivate soil, is left by the artist after the performance, and the video of performance is playing in the corner with a 15-inch television. On the screen, the artist is wearing a dark red long skirt, and she make handstand again and again against to the walls surrounding, the skirt is sliding down to the bottom, and the head and face is overshadowed under the skirt, revealing only legs and underpants holding high.

The poetry content of this work is not showing directly on the wall, but locked in one suitcase of her father's with password lock, and chained to one side of the picnic table in the center, on the other side of the picnic table, there is another suitcase with sketchbook and drawing tools locked in.
