Stilnox 200 2019
“Stilnox” could be a phenomenon in contemporary society.
It’s the largest use of sleeping pills.
As more and more people have sleep disorders,
Insomnia has also become one of the major diseases of modern society.
I have the dual status of a pharmacist and an artist.
Use 200 stilnox empty boxes as canvases to paint the observed phenomena and emotions.
It also arouses the awareness of understanding sleeping pills.
We must be the masters of the drug, instead of drug abuse and addiction.
Digital Thunder 2017
An irregular and abstract pattern observed on the construction fences in the concrete jungle of Taipei.
To probe into the reason why I’m deeply attracted,
I utilize digital tools to search for the sources of the energy.
It turns out that it is like a bolt of lightning from the digital world,
Also like the liveliness from the primitive nature.
Frida Kahlo 2019
In memory of Frida Kahlo, one of my favorite artists.
She is a remarkable woman who persevered despite living through immense physical pain for most of her life and endured heartbreak from the one man she loved more than life itself.
Never once the victim, Kahlo just went on living and dreaming.
She was unapologetic about who she was and that’s why she continues to shine today.
She never hid behind a facade or made excuses for who she was.
She never pretended to be someone else, she just was.
Note: The text above was written by the Artist. No modification was made by COCA.
