The investigations of the project mostly focusing on the public squares in the city centers of both Guangzhou and Bangkok, as well as a heavy metal mine and rural village which situate in the mountain valley of southern China.

Bathing in the color spectrum, people in the square are stained with the blue ray refract- ed from nowhere; camping temp groups on the anonymous streets, acidic bright cadmium orange lake surface…all in all with a scent of “epidermal touch”.

Limbs grow and penetrate through the public squares, as close as flesh and blood, the skins attached with the earth crust – he twisted himself against the backdrop of the reali-ty; his hair and the flayed skin, just as vivid and lively as they could be.
