During the period where my life went downhill, finding happiness is harder than anything else. I
looked back on myself and decided to work on my art again, with the thing that I love: flowers. I
went back to the important people in my life, from my childhood friend, my past teachers to the
colleagues that I love, inviting them to be in my space, having the photographs as the medium.
While I was taking their pictures, they would tell me the stories of their life. They are the people
who are there to listen to the things I had to say, secretly told over of the course of one year of
this work’s process. I feel like my feelings were revived and I turned back to be the same old
person by the talks with these persons, going back to work on my art and going back to the
flower that I love. This series is like pictures of me bare naked as well as the models. The
difference is that the models got their body stripped but I got my heart stripped.
