What adventure down there awaits its end?

riso-printed book


Collected by Joan Flasch Artists’ Book Collection, School of the Art Institute of Chicago

“I started adventuring in my dreams.”

Since March 2020, the quarantine began, I started having bizarre dreams and I documented all of them. Staying in my apartment all day, and get on an adventure almost every night. The state of reality and dream blurred, even reversed. I lost my life in reality but lived another life in my dream.

This riso-printed book including 29 pastel drawings that depict scenes from my dreams, echoing with a complete cycle of lunar phases. An adjective with its Chinese definition is given to each drawing, I chose to write the caption in Chinese where I felt private and intimate. The folding pages intimate what a day looks like, the day as plain as the subtle image of my bed-sheet and the night as vivid as the dream drawings.
