Flow
2007-2009
Starting from the experience of living in the Southern States, Savannah. Yi-Hsin creates some kinds of bodily semi liquid to fill up all subjects, figures, space and even viewers. Flows not only represent the backstage relationship but also project the absurd fantasy spurting from her, which bases on the superficiality of popular culture.
