如果說,

人每天都會看看手錶,藉以知道時間; 查尋氣象,以便知道該如何穿戴;

觀察股市走向,為了鑽研投資;

又如果說, 每隔一段時間, 會幫家裡的長輩們量量血壓跟心跳,為了注意他們的健康;

那麼, 當講到人與人之間的關係時,要用什麼衡量呢?

在我們的生活周遭,充滿了各式各樣的衡量。

STATEMENT

Many things in life are simple to understand through numbers and measurements, and many choices are made because of these numbers. But when it comes to human emotions, they may force the irrational choice no matter how logical the alternative. I seek to objectify the impossible. By embroidering moments of life on textile and finding other means of quantifying emotions, I depict human relationships through established methods of measurement. This work offers the viewer/wearer to draw their own conclusions using their own subjective biases. In doing so, they may also experience a moment of introspection leading to new and unexpected outlooks on life. june 2011
