When people observe each other, they make subjective guesses based on one’s facial expressions and behaviour, which is presented by changes of facial muscles. I am afraid of those extra and wrong guesses, because they may cause unexpected results. Besides, muscles can show our innermost mood and our past. I do not want some of my past experiences to be shown, therefore I remove the human skin and only skeletons remain.

Every single moment we experience in our lives is a process. When people change their focal point in different stages of life, their cognition of life will also change. These changes will push people from one extreme to the other, and their impressions of life will also change.

人們互相觀察時,會基於對方肌肉變化所呈現的表情和行為,對人作出主觀的揣測。我很懼怕一些額外和錯誤的揣測會引致意想不到的後果。皮膚下的肌肉變化能真實地呈現人的內心情緒和過去,而我卻不希望有些過去的經歷被呈現,因此我把人的皮膚脫下來,剩下骨架。

生命中的種種遭遇只是一個過程。當人在生命中的每刻,所抓緊或看重的位置有所不同,他們對生命的認知亦隨之而改變。這種轉變可能會把人從一個極端推向另一個極端,其對生命的觀感亦會徹底被換掉。
