做蛋糕  Cake

视频 材料:干冰 42枚硬币(包括中,美,日,欧等一些国家的硬币) 2015.04


video, solid carbon dioxide, and 42 coins (coins from China, the United States, Japan, Europe and other countries)  Apr.2015.

This work mainly uses a physical phenomenon that the solid carbon dioxide and metal contact can make sounds, and the metal can swing by itself. In the beginning there are two artists put coins on both sides on solid carbon dioxide, some coins fall off from solid carbon dioxide. Coins heap up higher and higher, covered by ice seems like a piece of cake. In the real world economic globalization, countries in the game together like everyone in the division of the cake, which brings a variety of economic problems, environmental problems and the greenhouse effect (solid carbon dioxide) is just one of the economic environment problems, this brought us to rethink, economy prosperity or economic crisis, or caused by regional economic disputes and destabilizing factors etc. The final picture of the artwork is a piece of white cake; the result is good or may be a decline, which needs the viewer to imagine.

I think being an artist is right for me. It is a very interesting thing to express oneself opinion. Something cannot directly speak out, artistic expression is a concern, is a topic for to discuss, otherwise you will not get feedback.

  • How to become a successful artist?

Artwork should be exhibited, and his (her) work tells a heart touching opinion, audiences can remember it for a long time. In the meantime, artist's expression is subject catch everyone's attention, and there is a possibility to discussion about the artist's works.

Nothing to say.

If they feel my artwork conform to their subject of the exhibition, then take it. The subject changed each year, artist’s work can not always create base on ‘ the subject’.
