I started this creation with my team in January 2019, eight months before the premier of this 25-minute work. It never stops growing from day one, and never stays the same. 

We have said something like, "I think we've got the work!" like 20 time...

it will come later.

過程中講的是transformation,但同時也是在實驗所謂的集體創作的可能,所以最後的作品既從個人的想像出發,亦以個人的方式離開。

將至。

真實的力量、抗衡與拉扯。

Try to hide the beginning, try to hide the end.

以數字作隱喻,窺探世界中共同語言的可能,你我之間溝通與觀看,各自的世界是從中誕生成形。

Number as metaphor to reconstruct the possibility of common language in the world; the possibility to communicate, to see, to be seen, and let our own world arises.

In order to further investigate the possibility of the research that I've been working on for The World Was Once Flat, as well as sharing it to local artists, I've led two days of workshop devised from the materials and form in the piece.

It was definitely a precious and anxious project for me, at least for the first week of residency in Wales with the collective. The way of working in a collective indeed challenged the usual practice of an individual with the attempt of not taking over the power in the...
