Before the concept of nation, society or culture, humans naturally knew the potential of soil as clay, and used it to make religious statues and functional utensils. The relationship between soil and human beings is sacredly historical and at the same time concretely extensive.

Living in the developmentalist city is like repeatedly throwing the same ceramic form. There is no absoluteness in life or pottery making, but only an endless mix of chaos and silence.

 

在還沒有「國家」、「社會」、甚至「文化」這些概念之先,人類就自然地把玩泥土,以之製作神像與器具。泥土與人的關係歷史久遠得神聖,無處不在得實在。

生活在發展至上的城市就像重覆拉製陶器的過程。生命和陶藝沒有絕對的出口,只得紛亂與安寧交雜。
