A home video tape recording travel memories with families triggers the rethinking of his relationship with family and the influence it brings, which further encourages him to rethink and explicate himself, his private life experience, sorrow in relationships, and family. With a focus on sentimental stimulation brought from his growing stage, he transfers the trauma from his family into physical performances, videos, installations, sculptures, sketches and objects. He builds up a theatrical, ritual and continuity inner space with personal experiences, fragments from memories and emotion reflection.Through the contradictory, painful, traumatic, metamorphic and private inner emotions, he concludes a method to understand oneself, digest, fill up and reinterpret the doubt he has been digging from the current stage.
