The work is inspired by the news of a Chinese teacher who resigned from her job with a letter saying "the world is big, I want to see it." Scattered texts, abandoned pet fish, and personal drawings act as clues to piece together a fictional disappearing. The installation aims to heighten the sudden suspension of mundane routine, while highlighting the apprehension around waiting and uncertainty. In the other room, various sound installations would be activated by the visitors’ motions, which would trigger tiny sounds of ambient field recordings, as well as notes and poetry on distance and intimacy, all of which require close listening.

六年前女教师的辞职信上说,世界那么大,我想去看看。新作品”胶囊/稻草”从一场突然失踪的状态开启,声音和线索的文字通过口述,掩藏,撕毁,展示贯穿在居住空间和黑色的放映间。观众在影像,装置,诗歌中游走徘徊,在压力和平衡中从内部窥探世界,思考究竟是还未开始还是已经结束。
