Can't get back to it. The state of natural occurrence, as time goes by and environment changes, it is impossible to return to the past. Think about the word,irreversibility, what’s the story that comes to your mind?
When I was sewing this piece of work, I kept asking myself, "Is this me?" It turned out that this is me NOW. Honestly, I can't quite accept the aging process!
Perhaps, each of us has an irreversible story to say? Happy creating!
Is this me? During a speech, one of the listeners hand painted my portrait. What was the feeling that motivated her to draw? Or, what did I say to inspire her? From the eyes of others, and then through drawing, I see what I look like when delivering a speech. It is so different from photography. I am so much moved! Indeed, this is me!
