This installation piece was exhibited at the group show
"AFTER HUMAN: MARKS OF THE BEASTS". 
Echoing the theme of the show, the whole narration was developed from the Chinese quote and the well-known natural phenomenon,
"飛蛾撲火” (The moth chasing the fire)

Continuing the practice of starting from a story, I wrote a story about a crowd of moths having their time, chasing the light of their life in a dance room.

It was a beautiful yet tragic story.

失落舞廳裏,有一顆閃閃發亮的球。
城裏蛾慕名而來,
想一睹傳說中的光。

絢麗的光,跳舞的蛾。
一步、兩步,
隨著節奏,蛾群失去控制。
沿著光的軌道,瘋狂奔跑。

妄想自己能成為太陽、成為土星,
又或者成為星環、成為星塵。
在墜落之前,發出微弱的光。
在墜落之後,成為燃燒大地的火雨。

據聞舞廳是被一場大火吞噬的。

In the lost ballroom, there was a glittering sphere.
The city moths flocked,
Yearning to witness the mythic light.

Glowing light and dancing moths.
One step, two steps.
Joining the beat, they lost control.
Along the orbit, they ran in madness.

Fantasizing to become the sun, the Saturn,
Or to become the ring of stars and stardust.
Before the descent, they emit faint light.
After their descent, they were the fiery rain of the burning earth.

 

 

I would describe everything that existed in the room the fragments that connected and belonged to the story. The audience can interpret their projection of the piece.
