The "Ke Si"(a type of weaving done by the tapestry method in fine silks and gold thread) in the video is a traditional Chinese folk craft. The artist found that the vibration generated when the wooden shuttle passed through the two-layered warp caused a refraction illusion of water ripples on the loom's silk thread. The weaving ridges resemble a small boat of canal towns in the south of the Yangtze floating in the hometown of sericulture woven by water nets. From this, the work shows the romance and busyness of the "weaving" of the watery town through a clever perspective and poetic language, accompanied by a moving ancient song re-interpreted under today's context.
