My favorite sentences. ‘All conditioned phenomena are like a dream, an illusion, a bubble, a shadow, Like dew or a flash of lighting; Thus we shall perceive them.’ Which from <Diamond Sutra >. Art creation is like to find a view to watch and think. --I realized. Firstly, combine reality, dreams, and imaginations as parts of inspiration of this ‘virtual world’. ‘Where is the ‘virtual world’ exist?’ ‘How can I go to the ‘virtual world’?’ ‘What kind of road will be like?’ ‘What will be part of the ‘virtual world’?’  Those questions kept questing me. Secondly, choose two symbols: clouds and water in artworks , one meaning of ‘clouds and water’ is freedom. Something above clouds is paradise or some place unreal defined by religion and myth. Water is the biggest part of earth, full of mystery.

Three more reasons show special preference to ‘clouds and water’:When I was a kid, used to spend one mouth for my hands recovered from the acute infection, during those days my hands bound up like a mummy. Still remember my mother washed gauze everyday that month. My Chinese name, ‘lan’, means clouds around high mountains. ‘Clouds and water’ are the different appearances of water molecules. Moreover, there is a serious reason for choosing black as a symbol.

Black—Xuan (black) —Sky. Xuan is a Chinese word. Three meanings of Xuan: A profound theory; something is very difficult to believe; color of black. ‘Sky’ for individual one is full of unknown. The meaning of ‘black’ is the perfect one to anastomose.From the information above, can conclude that the part of art creation, which I am studying is about imagination. It could be the beginning of the universe.
