Conceptual Statement: As a craftsman, I try to describe how human beings stay with the environment and depend on each other. Then ,I try to translate the feelings into jewelries, so that people would keep the relationship as a treasure. Culturally, in Taiwanese folk customs, we communicate with the other world through the rite of burning. In this series mainly using the technique of aluminum anodizing, I keep the unique fire mark to represent how the dead lives in our heart and the way we watch over each other from both sides,through photographic composition, the work expresses the alienation and fall when life disappears.
