What is "mine" may one day be connected to "us".
Some people appear in your life just to tell you a word, to accompany you for a while, or to push you forward from behind. When you think the music is approaching the end, it may turn out to be the preface of a symphony. There are always growth and memories in the course of recording and preservation.
Words from “Landlord”
We have all been young and reckless to imagine the future in pursuit of unspeakable excitement. The seemingly distant future is actually an integration of the thoughts and actions you have in the present moment. During these uncertain times, the fluctuating gates are still open. Maybe we can rely on the creative spirit to sew the broken pieces together and know that the most important gift is someone to walk with as we experience this time together.
Having been in the creative career for many years, there are still a ton of questions that keep recurring in my mind...
Does art creation really help people understand themselves better?
Does the path of creating art really make people passionate about life?
Does the practice of art really boost people's curiosity towards the world and cultivate empathy in them?
From "I" to "we", this year’s ”No Man is An Island” urges us to "hop across the islands" – with people of various ages, artistic expertise, fields or disciplines, we do something that we seldom do and weave the wonderful life fragments of each individual into a story of "us". In the process, we learn to get along with ourselves, to appreciate the value of ourselves and others, to have the courage of creating possibilities even in difficulty, to dare to face perfection in imperfection. What are your answers to these recurring questions?
