We often position ourselves backwards to understand the historical moments. What do images mean to us from mass media? They are still moving. Facing screens or newspaper, distance between every issue and individual extract ability of thinking. I can only have in hands the photos, footage and unforgettable names. Through art creation, I try to illustrate the outline of history in order to wear down cruelty of bloody scene, or conflict, showing blankness of confusion and compressed impression. In the collage, I cut out the outlines of some important figures and transcribe the words describing the whole things from Wikipedia on a piece of glass.
