'、' is a special punctuation mark used for slight pause in Chinese. It is often used to divide a series of similar items into individuals. As the firststroke of the Chinese character mi ('rice'),  '、' embodies a metaphor for the action of separating a grain of rice from groups in the work.

、attempts to identify one grain of rice from a bowl of rice. Through drawing the single grain for 3202 times repeatedly, the work aims to discuss the individual and collective value of rice.

「、」是漢語中用作輕微停頓的特殊標點符號。它經常被用來將一系列相似的事物分開為個體。作為漢字「米」的第一個筆劃,「、」象徵着作品中把一粒米從群體中分離出來的行為。

《、》試圖從一碗米飯中分辨出一粒米。作品通過重複地對單一粒米進行3202次的描繪,旨在討論米的個體和集體價值。
