This is a multimedia installation which integrates the sense of sight, hearing and smell. Through poetic meditation, the artist reconstructs an ancient myth when the cosmos was in chaos and deduces a time-disorder modern absurd play filling with contradictions in a memorizing image of the world. In this scene with the sound of xun and silkworm, we can vaguely find the three-legged bird, Ping Qi, Kua Fu, Hou Yi, Apollo, Dionysus etc. An astonishing relic of the world under the current ecological crisis is waiting to be discovered by audiences.
