Introduction of the form of artwork:
The artist plays the same melody six times, than after each playing he uses sharp knife .To cut off any string of the six strings, and as the decreasing number of the strings, the same song has six different melodies (octaves、fifth、tonic tones of Major and minor,therefore the root tone is disappearing gradually and only the simple rthythm there)
The artist put three wild birds inside the amp of the guitar , and through the needle camera an interesting picture was showed of a kind of relationship which formed from the space of birds、six strings、the audience. While the artist cuts off
The steel string, the birds will choose to leave by it’s half free will.

Explanation of the art creating thoughts:
From this art work the artist tried to combine image、sound、performance art、objects…etc different languages, and put focus on the space relationship formed from the birds、steel strings and the audience. “Looking” has become subject sometimes(looking at the bird and self rom the image), also become object sometimes(the self in the image was looked by the birds and also looking the self in reality ).
Through the transforming of the image, the inside space of the guitar appears extraordinary huge; on the other side, the outside reality space of the guitar appears
Extraordinary squeezed 、narrow. The movement of cutting string: put the knife between the bird and the audience, and making noise squeezing sound , is in oder to make up a dangerousness feeling in the presence
[Birds seem to be free (fly into the horizon) ]
Human being also see to be liberated (The six strings symbol of jail was cut off gradualy)
The audience’s feeling and reception come back suddenly from the image world to the reality and everything is as peaceful as usually…….but in suspect and danger.
