With this exhibition, the author intended to bring audiences, in temporary oblivion of time existence, into a minimum perspective of a tiny ant during a tour of various cracks. Cracks have indicate different countless fractures between people, objects, stories, time and space, which showcase imperfection as well as living dimensions whose size can be expanded or narrowed according to views and perspectives. Those freely scattering lines bring about one crack after another in different sizes, which represents freedom and living vitality just like the aesthetic blank advocated in traditional Chinese painting.
