A transient art performance that represents our interconnected nature through the breath.

 

I explore the theme of non-self, breaking the belief that we are a solid ego with an expanded view of the self: we only exist in relationship to others, interdependently.

Every line has been drawn at the length of the duration of a breath of each person that has touched my life with love.

 

Upon the disintegration of this art piece, impermanence is realized, and each grain of sand is offered back to the Earth.

 

一個瞬時即逝的表演藝術作品,代表着我們通過呼吸互相聯繫的性質。

破除「人存是為了和他人互相依存」固有自我的觀點並且探索無我。

每一條線都以我愛的人組成,而他們的呼吸時間決定其線長度。

作品解體之後,每一粒沙子都會返回地球,實現無常。
