About the work
I explored the interaction between solid and gas through this work. The softness of the balloon contrasts the hardness of rocks sharply, and internal force of interaction exists between the balloon and rocks. I want to express the stability and instability, control and being controlled in this project.
"Everything has balance, and everything is balance. Such as the balance of YIN and YANG in one's body, the balance between plantation and harvest, the balance between ocean and fishing. The balance is nature, the nature is harmony, and the existence of everything is a perfect harmony."
