<The Lines> 1   3' 42'

In real life,some of the limitations are often invisible.Even more terrifying is that we are used to it.In my series of line works, I mainly focus on the concept of the line. Try to break some of "limitations”of myself and maintain “balance”.

The second video work is l walked along all the straight lines on the path to the supermarket,which l am very familiar with. In the process, l was sometimes pacing and sometimes running result of the urge of traffic lights on a sturdy and stable human-made road.As more and more things are bought, Carrying this canvas bag makes me keep balance more difficult.The camera was recording my steps as an outsider or peeper.

The picture on the right is my conversion of the first video into a picture. At this stage I am fascinated with
Bruce Nauman,in his latest exhibition Disappearing Acts about the variable experience of time,space, movement and language.
So l overlapped the pictures,with my feet as the main characters.Connect the screenshots in the video into a
new line.

this work is people crossing the road then I take video from the street to secretly.On the sidewalk, people at different times are connected by lines on the road.Finally,I copied the people's feet in the video to form a new image.
Through this series of practice,l realized that the line can be a constraint for me,and it can also be an infinite extension. It links my theme for this semester together and is a trace of my artistic thoughts.This also requires me to accumulate a lot of practice.Due to various restrictions this semester,my progress has been slow. I should find a more effective outlet to better adapt to the current situation.
