T.S. Eliot's poem, The Waste Land, was plastered on the wall with wall stickers. Then scrape it off. Roll the remains of the wall stickers into a ball and place them at the end of the poem.

The Introduction of "Turning Inward"
The new concept typeface is constructed by disassembling and reassembling Chinese characters to an enclosing shape, and the new concept typefaces are installed in a circular structure, which strengthens the idea of “enclose”.

They were inspired by COVID-19:This word, considered as "defect" by all social systems, bypasses all different ideologies, easily disintegrating all grammars, disconnecting and closing each other. The artist realized that the word "defect" is the key to the method, which inspired him to build his thinking and practice on the level of Chinese characters and phrases, where he can respond and present the new reality that we have to face through his research.
