Walking in Istanbul | "Do you have a cup of tea?" With the cat's lazy pace, shuttle the old and new city lanes

By
Photography/ Stella Tsai. Everyone who has seen the documentary "Kedi" knows that the main son of Istanbul is not a human being, but a cat scattered in the streets. They walked around the crowd market, and even went to the room, in the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque, staring at others, coming and going without a trace. And people will always remember to put a good feed at the door, not let the masters go hungry. The young people of Istanbul are also like cats, and they are free to avoid the bustling prosperity of the city, avoiding the weight of history and the unpleasant smell, and finding the base of gathering. The first visit to Istanbul, always with travel books and travel notes, visit the market, the port, architectural attractions, feel the rich and historic atmosphere; the sound of the sound of the prayers spread across the streets and lanes, sitting on the corner with hot black tea You think that the city is still immersed in the deep pool of history and contending, and has not yet awakened. Until some afternoon, walking into the bank of the Bank of Australia (Bankalar Caddesi), entering the secret "SALT Galata", will suddenly feel the modern charm of the city. The history of the treasury, the bank's remodeled art library | SALT Galata is located near the famous historical site Galata Tower, near the Karaköy neighbourhood of the North Point of the Golden Horn. SALT Galata is the second base of SALT, the largest cultural organization in Istanbul. The historic building, Ottoman Bank, has been transformed into an exhibition hall, library, conference hall, and mini-store in Robinson Crusoe, the largest English-language chain of books in Istanbul. In addition to the library, the attached cafe is a gathering place for young people and students from Istanbul. SALT Galata was sprinkled in the evening in the evening, and the room was golden. Walking into SALT Galata, the nostalgic atmosphere of the city was immediately blocked, and the library was full of seats. The historical vault became an exhibition space, and the elevator was used from the underground to the top of the building, as if crossing the ancient and modern. The café is another charming gathering where people sit or stand, the tables are filled with laptops and discussion teachers and students; despite the free WIFI, few people slide phones, play mobile games, and there is no Pedara Palace. Photographing net beauty. A simple cup of coffee can gather for an afternoon, work, read, chat with friends, or even chess, and move to the outdoor patio area to feel the sun.

Walk along the Berlin Citadel Gallery with John Cage's notes: The Feuerle Collection

By
All Images Courtesy of The Feuerle Collection. It is not the German style to cover up or fill past tears and scars. In particular, the city of Berlin retains many icy cement bunkers that have historically carried a military mission and a gloomy historical color. With the support of the local government, open art collectors purchased it and turned it into a private gallery. Through the cooperation between the public and private sectors, the ruined historical buildings have become a unique art exhibition platform, and at the same time, they have injected cultural power into the society to achieve a win-win situation. The Feuerle Collection, which was converted from the Nazi bunker during the Second World War, is not only a subversion of the traditional private gallery, but also an artistic sacred place that is isolated from the world and will fall into the trap.

The bunker for military purposes is mostly a cumbersome and simple building with a thick wall. However, unlike the refuge that provides shelter from enemy air raids and consists of many small compartments, The Feuerle Collection was formerly a space for large telecommunications equipment during wartime; it is about three meters high and has a large single-area area. The columns stand in rows. Therefore, it is only for storage, the atmosphere is more lonely, and the air is filled with infinite coldness.

The opening to the bottom of the earth: Borderlife, making the life of the wanderer better

By

Designed in Milan by the Italian artist Biancoshock, the "Borderlife" installation art transforms three abandoned sewers into a comfortable living space. Hidden in the small space under the manhole cover, it contains small kitchens, bathroom space and other basic facilities needed for life. The wall is hung with clocks, portraits and hats, all of which are full of comfort and warmth, but with the ground. The surrounding environment is inextricably contrasted, and it is far from being accessible to many homeless people without the reminiscent of our usual home. In Bucharest, the capital of Romania, which is known as the capital of the East, there are more than 600 homeless wanderers and a few unnamed real estates living in extremely poor groundwater. According to the British "Daily Mail" report, Bucharest, the capital of Eastern Europe, has been hailed as "Oriental Paris", but under its magnificent architecture, it has a little-known underground world. This underground world is made up of a vast sewer network that is a paradise for wanderers and drug dealers. Almost all households suffer from AIDS, and a quarter of people suffer from tuberculosis. They can only wait for death in the dark. The entrance to the underground city is located in a hole in the traffic island sidewalk in front of the train station. When the sun is about to fall, the residents of the underground city begin to wake up and climb to the ground like a living dead. (News source) This social problem must be traced back to a period of large population. The situation stems from the first president of Romania: Nicolae Ceauşescu, who was in charge at the time, believed in the power of people and advocated racial purity. People are prohibited from abortion and divorce, and each family is required to have at least 5 children. At that time, the lack of maternity workers and medical care, as well as economic and health conditions, not only increased the proportion of orphans and disabilities, but also the lack of medicine, leading to the spread of AIDS among children. Bucharest's shocking underground country allowed Biancoshock's long-term commitment to public art to reflect on the narrow installation space of "Borderlife." The walls of the three underground spaces are clinging to mural stickers, charms and wall clocks, as well as the angels in Raphael's "The Sistine Madonna" looking up at the sky. In this frame, it is a comment on the juxtaposition of the dystopian reality and the middle-upper class. It ignores those living in the underground drainage system and once again reminds the urban population of inequality that it is deliberately forgotten. My source of inspiration is the capital of Romania: Bucharest. There are more than 600 names living in the gutters that go underground, and if there are some problems that cannot be avoided, try to make them feel comfortable. Intervene in them and say that people are forced to live in Sakai to survive in extreme environments. This vast underground world is a twilight city made up of various sewer networks, and is home to wanderers and drug dealers. At the moment when the sun fell, the underground residents woke up and climbed the ground from the hole. Biancoshock said, "If you can't improve this situation, why not let them live comfortably." Through the narrow underground space, three different home environments are depicted, and it is hoped that through such art exhibitions, people can be called upon to pay attention to these wanderers and refugees. The dilemma of life encountered. Text/Dean Chen. Edit / Sia. Image Sources: Biancoshock & Channel 4.

The boundary of the performance without rehearsal: an impromptu dialogue, the curator of Chaos, Chen Wukang

By
Images Courtesy of 骉舞剧场. There may be some ancient legend, everything begins with interactive temptations without dialogue, and today we call such experiments improvisation. Impromptu as a producer's production method, a free dialogue can be created and a text with no scope can be created. In the fall of 2016, the dance studio launched a series of performances, "Chaotic Body", which was jointly planned by Chen Wukang, the artistic director of the dance theater, and Li Shiyang, the musician. The creators were invited to create performances in the rehearsal field with body and sound. Without rehearsal and rehearsal, the performers attempted to create a creative field with a blurred purpose and unknown direction in the performance, which made the performers inspire each other, and only depended on it. Perhaps we can say that this series of performance experiments is a kind of friendship, the marriage notice of Taiwanese dance performances in the early 21st century. [Chaotic body sound] The first season of the first season, Chen Wukang XPorta Chiusa. [Chaotic body sound] The first season of the first season, Chen Wukang XPorta Chiusa. How should the audience expect an impromptu performance? How to get a spark from the planner's matching relationship? For the performers, how can they develop a considerable dialogue content and method from an initial respectful friendship? Improvisation becomes a performance, and there must be defects in the overall structure. However, the freedom to be cared for and the unknown to be expected are expected in the performance experiment. The dancers and the performers talk to each other in different languages, and we don't need to expect the dancer to make a sound in any way or the player's identity translocation. Rather, in the impromptu performance, the performers have drawn up the range of media they can use, understand the possibilities and mechanisms of exchange, and continue to be the production that will come in the future.

In the series of "Chaotic Body", which was jointly planned by dancer Chen Wukang and pianist Li Shiyang, the performer was enlarged to the audience in an impromptu performance form, and the initial performance was seen. The performance is such a general beginning, the exhibition is on the stage, and the performers become their own. But I don't always have only the self. There are many deep memories and casual conversations and exchanges. It is like a daily routine. This time Chen Wukang talked with us about improvisation and the process of chaos in improvisation.

[Chaotic body sound] The fifth quarter of the second season, Ye Wangzhou X non-confidential space (Xie Mingzhen + Zheng Gejun). . What kind of opportunity is for you and musician Li Shiyang to start planning this series of performances together? I first went to New York in 2014. During the period, I saw many impromptu performances. There are various forms, most of which are music. About 10-15 minutes before the performance, the audience can enter. The performers have big names and new ones. Impromptu performance. The performers do not rehearse before the performance, but not because they are irresponsible, but they also envy that they can start performing without preparation. The first game I watched was the performance of Philip Glass and a poet. One person read poetry and one played the piano. After the bombing, he got up and walked outside, walked through the crowd and walked out the door. We thought that someone outside would follow the next performance, but he took his things to take the subway. In fact, such a legendary composer is so everyday. Later, before leaving New York, I was invited by a friend and played with them there. This kind of collision or contact through improvisation is very common in this city, it is happening everywhere, it is very chaotic - just like a word, "multidisciplinary". As a dancer, I hope to be able to make an acceleration, let everyone collide a little more, don't think too much. So after I came back, I discussed with Li Shiyang, starting from the fall of 2016, the first season of "Chaotic Body". [Chaotic body sound]...

The glimmer of the lanes: the old-fashioned craftsmanship, walk into the DOS TALLERS ceramics studio in Barcelona

By
Photography/Cinny unless stated otherwise. I often heard that my friends who arrived in Spain first arrived in Spain, and they took the unsettled baggage with enthusiasm and embarked on the famous La Rambla in Barcelona. The cheap fashion flagship store is lingering. The fashionable items on the shelves were picked up and put down by the young girls, and the suede boots and the coarse-knit sweaters that were lucky to fall into the shopping basket were always in the same way, and they couldn’t help but have the ball and the flat sole. In less than two seasons, Replace the old one. Thinking of the winter before the cold current in previous years, my mother saw me coming up north with a jacket and a thin sweater. She turned and sneaked her young wool scarf into my arms while packing her luggage. The weather is cold, don't wear warm clothes. Just like a childhood dream scarf, light and soft like a low-pitched lullaby, the embroidery is delicate and charming with the blue outline of the lake, and the needles can feel the care of the weaver, which is the delicate handwork that can not be replaced by fast fashion. Located in the northwestern part of Barcelona, ​​Gracia, as the name "grace" means, if the skyline of Gaudí is the language of God, then Gracia is the creative water in the city. In the fashionable and small lanes of this area, there are many young artists who are self-reliant, and craftsmen who have been working in metalworking, leather or ceramics for a long time. They are not unassuming, they are lame, and they are silently on their own side. The world is cultivating, trying to resist the rise of fast fashion with the craft in hand. Among them, Dos Tallers is such a hand-made workshop combining textile and pottery. Break into the stone brick lanes of the roundabout and accidentally miss the wooden door with the words "Dos Tallers" on it. "Dos" is the "double" in Catalan, and "Taller" is the meaning of the studio. The appearance of Dos Tallers is low-key and calm, exuding a reassuring and rustic smell, just like two A temperamental hostess. In this small workshop divided into two, it is dotted with a variety of delicate buttons and ceramic art. It is the working space of ceramic artist Victoria Ibars; all kinds of weaving and wood in the wall-mounted storage cabinet The delicate buttons of the grain and porcelain are dazzling, and the large workbench is a lively and bizarre pottery design, as well as a bundle of cotton threads and unformed clay. "This is all I have in my life," Victoria said with a smile. Graduated from the Institute of Technology in Barcelona, ​​she has been involved in ceramics for 18 years. She used to design ceramics and furniture. She is interested in fashion and occasionally orders buttons and necklaces for many old customers. Such as personal accessories. At one time, Victoria's jewellery works were unexpectedly favored by cutting-edge designers and on Fashion Week. Today, she is a professional ceramics artist and a professional button craftsman. When talking about buttons, she is more than anyone else: "If it is a black velvet round neck dress, it will be more elegant with antique gold-plated buttons. As for the cloak with a oxford feel, the marble button is made of marble. It will add a few maturity and solemnity. Although Spain is a big country of fast fashion brands (laughs), I still have a lot of old guests, I like to choose the right cloth on the cloth store, discuss the style and tailoring with the tailor, and then choose Neckline, buttons and cufflinks. For them, "pick selection" is a must, and a tasteful exercise." And at the other end of the Dos Tallers space, there are many soft, colorful cloaks and scarves. And cleverly matched with the gentleman's hat and leather gloves, this is the work space of the other owner of the workshop, Anna Solà. Dressed in a plain wool shawl, she is gently combing the wool shawl in the hand of Peru's traditional hand-woven method. Anna's textile works are all pure natural silk, linen and wool. The three woven looms behind them are handmade. Different from Victoria's enthusiasm, this woman who seems to be elegant, rigorous and even shy, was originally a linguistic teacher at a university, not only Spanish, English and Catalan, but also French. Céret resident artist, she can also speak fluent French. Image Courtesy of Dos Tallers. Image Courtesy of Dos Tallers. Image Courtesy of Dos...

Muggle carefully! The visual truth of crossing the magic: the Paris Magic Museum

By

There is a kind of illusion in the world, which flows quietly between the blink of an eye and the closed eye. When the pupils shrink and bloom, there are still dead corners that cannot be seen through the visual. At this time, only patiently waiting for the circulation of time and space can give a glimpse of the back. The truth, this is the charm of "magic". Interestingly, this illusion is not revealed through special functions and witchcraft, but through special techniques and objects. It can also be defined as: "Under the law of material immortality and conservation of energy, Presenting a performance that violates the rules of thumb.” The streets of Paris, where cultural and artistic heritage is abundant, have always hidden a variety of museums, one of which is located in the fourth district, near Saint-Paul, St. Paul's Church of St. Louis. The unique collection of the museum, THE MUSEE DE LA MAGIE, "Magic Museum", was born in 1993 and was created by magician Georges Proust. When you arrive at your destination, the first thing that comes to your attention is the red painted wooden door frame. Above the door, there is a roller blind sign that symbolizes the magic. The small entrance plays a silver bell-like fantasy soundtrack. If you are lucky enough, You can also meet the mechanically controlled dolls, move your palms and steps one by one, and invite you into the magical fantasy world. Follow the stairs into the basement, along with the old-fashioned performance props, as if gradually entering the history of magic, entering the golden age of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Walking through the progress hall, the theme is filled with fantasy posters on the wall, like a group of elves and demons that swim in the air, exploring the theme of "soul out." The 7 exhibition halls of MUS'EE DES AUTOMATES, in addition to guiding tourists through books and props, also exhibited more than 100 automatic puppets; some puppets have been mottled through historical baptism, but they can see people from their creative sources. The search for an unknown field and the philosophical speculation of "metaphysics." However, after reading these hidden meanings under the function and aesthetics, I still can't help but guess that when the night is silent, the puppets whose puppets are "independently" moved by mechanical control are also planning a brilliant magic show. Looking at the props in the exhibition hall, you can see all kinds of fantasy faces. Some of them use the slender wrists to pull the violin, some of them look like the sun-like pupils, swallowing the tongue as if taunting reality, silently revealing the magic Freedom in the world. There are also many portable small devices that allow visitors to actually experience the amazing principles under these “funny”. In the 18th century, magic performers always tried to blur the boundaries between scientific practice and aesthetics, so that the audience could get to the bottom of the question in order to seek the principles. Now, people can face the truth with THE MUSEE DE LA MAGIE and "truth". Seeing joy, it seems to indirectly complete the curiosity of people who were unsatisfied at the time. In the Middle Ages, unlike online media, it is easy to find inspiration. Any thoughts and ideas will be imagined first, and inspired by the visual experience of life, even the experience of dreams. The museum’s collection of performances Through the process technology and the imagination of the artist, the magical color is rendered for the reality, as if the moon is hung on the starry sky and the world view is extended. Visitors come here, in addition to knowing one of the most influential magic practitioners of the 19th century: Jean-Eugène Robert-Houdin (1805-1871), and through the literature, discovering light and shadow, lenticular mirrors and other objects from the context of history. A profound impact on the magic. In addition, if you are interested in the magic during the exhibition, the museum also has a related magic course, open to enthusiasts and beginners to learn, personally unlock this mysterious magic password. THE MUSEE DE LA MAGIE presents the magical colors of the time, such as puppets, automata, books, films, documentaries, etc., which is equivalent to the deep learning and pursuit of artistic language in modern society. The history of magic is not only logical but also metaphysical. The design of the exterior, etc., in which the philosophical view of idealism may better express the illusory truth of "the heart is magic" in the magic; it also confirms that people's enthusiasm for the unknown world is always like the newborn baby. Curious and interesting hearts, using the universe as a drawing paper, swaying extraordinary colors. ...

Building a floating crystal spaceship on the island of knowledge: Lyon Confluence Museum, France

By

Located at the junction of Rhône and Saône, the Musée des Confluences is located on a man-made island with a history of 100 years. The name of the museum is not only at the intersection of the two rivers, but also There are expectations for an important hub for academic and cultural exchanges. The museum was completed in 2014 and became the first science center and anthropology museum in Lyon, France. After three years of steady development, it has become one of Lyon's unique landmarks. The museum was designed by the Austrian architectural team Coop Himmelb(l)au, with three main elements: the Plinth, the Crystal and the Cloud. The pavilion is based on a century-old artificial island, like a crystal spaceship moored at sea, and the Luma Arles, next door to the town of Yar, is far from the court; farther away, it is just like the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris. The Plinth is made of reinforced concrete to lift the building's topography and increase the space. This part covers the main conference halls and exhibition halls; the crystal is placed on top. It is a unique space with reinforced glass to depict the outline - as an important facade of the museum, facing the lively urban area of ​​the south, bringing a lot of natural light and outdoor atmosphere to the passages and spaces in the museum - visitors can see it as soon as they look up The sky above the sky is full of clouds, forming a distinctive welcome hall. The Cloud is a flying ship-like tail with respect to the crystal's latitude and longitude, making the building and the harbor's boats look like each other, as if they were a huge ship moored in the town. The construction team used a lot of materials full of “transparency” to make the museum daylight in the daytime, and the night was brightly lit. Like the night pearl on the sea, the open arms welcome visitors. As a large art city in South France, Lyon has accumulated many venues and installations for different purposes in the past 100 years. The completion of the Confluence Museum has brought a new vision of science and anthropology to Lyon. There are three general exhibitions in the pavilion: "European-Stories of the world", which tells the story of human origin, with giant dinosaur fossils taking tourists back to large-scale species extinction; "Species- the Web of Life" from animals and From a human perspective, explore the perspectives of human and non-human species viewing the world and question the human standard. The final "Societies – Human theatre" explores the social nature of human migration and gathering. The three themes and three areas of knowledge provide visitors with a diverse perspective on the world and history. If the architect is an uncontrolled wild horse, France's tolerance and aesthetics of architecture may be the savannah that accommodates these wild horses. If you have the opportunity to come to France and visit the capital city of Paris, you may wish to go south all the way, to visit the old and new, the ancient and modern architecture tour!

Dressing up for the world, duo artist Christo and Jeanne-Claude

By

The art created by many artists often seems to be less easy to understand in the eyes of the general public; and the art is presented in a variety of ways, in addition to familiar paintings, photography, sculptures, etc., there are too many different ones. Performance method. The couple's duo artists, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, have created many amazing works around the world in the way they have been good for decades - "packages". Christo, who specializes in creating environmental art (the two insist that their creation is not "Land Art"), began to receive art education when he was young. After meeting France and Jeanne-Claude, the two began to work together, even Later settled in the United States, still creating constantly. Their "parcel" approach seems to be wearing one piece of clothing for the world; Christo and Jeanne-Claude are all creating a wide range of local scenes. For example, in 1969, the creation of "Wrapped Coast" - have you ever thought that the coastline can be "covered"? The Surrounded Islands, which began in 1980 and created in 1983, used 600,000 cubic meters of pink fabric to surround the 11 islands of Miami, presenting an amazing "pink island" view. Among the works of Christo and Jeanne-Claude, the most widely known and sensational world was the 23-year cycle that was completed and completed in the German "Wrapped Reichstag". At the time, Christo and Jeanne-Claude proposed a proposal to cover the German parliament, which caused a lot of controversy; finally passed in 1995 and was approved. The entire century-old building of the German parliament became the most well-known installation art in the hands of Christo and Jeanne-Claude, and attracted many people to the pilgrimage. In addition to these famous works, Christo and Jeanne-Claude's creations are almost all over the world, Sydney, Japan, Paris, Rome, they are covered with the beauty of the world, tied with the heart that people want to snoop. These wraps are like packaging, hoping to stimulate people to want to find out the curiosity; and these covered objects, landscapes, and sometimes because of the hidden details, show the most basic essence. ...

The specific appearance of human desire: photographer Yao Ruizhong's "Giant God Connection"

By

It was clearly the last sunny day before turning cold, but it was a few rains in the afternoon. It seems that Yao Ruizhong said that as long as the Bodhisattva holding the bottle is rainy. We sat in the pavilion next to the Guanyin Guanyin on the Beitou Mountain. While waiting for the rain to stop, I heard him tell the story of the statue of the gods in the past year and a half. Surrounded by grass and trees, but the sky is shining from time to time, so that this rare pavilion will add a little clear atmosphere. Black, black pants, and a black Pentax 67 negative camera on the hand, that's all. In the past 18 months, Yao Ruizhong used this equipment every week to drive around to shoot big statues. Around the island, I walked through more than 230 temples and took 370 rolls of film. It took a lot of effort to go back to the light. But he is tired, but he is persistent and wants to finish. "There are always signs, let me search again." He said, "I have never failed to make a film. But once I came back from Tainan, even the four volumes rushed out are black. I feel weird, there must be a leak. Sure enough. I found 15 fewer people and went back and forth 600 kilometers the next day." The accident and the Buddha "have a contract" to invest in contemporary art for 30 years, photography has always been one of Yao Ruizhong's main creative types. Since 2010, he has been carrying out the well-known "Maritime City: Taiwan's idle public facilities photography project". With the help of students, he has found the mosquito museum in the mountains and the sea carpet. It is the first long-term photography project for the abandoned construction in China. Five books have been published so far. In addition to the value of art, it also forms the long-term supervision of the rulers. But before the sixth episode was still in progress, she had a quarrel with her mother last March, and then her mother left home. He rushed to the temple to worship bye. As a result, he dreamed of the unknown voice at night and said, "Go and shoot a big statue!" He remembered some Buddha statues that were scattered in the past when he walked around, and decided to use this as a theme. The "Giant God" in Taiwan has been wiped out. Only when I started shooting, my mother came back and was unharmed. How much desire, how big the statue is, although the beginning of the opportunity is somewhat magical, but this series of photography called "Giant God Connection" has nothing to do with singing religion. Yao Ruizhong specializes in selecting medium-sized or larger statues that are at least twice as tall as the average person. The purpose is to point out the collections that they accept as if they were intended to project. The more effective the gods, the more the believers donate, the more they have the money to cover the super-sized gods. This way back and forth, its growing posture is like the embodiment of super desire. The idol is a computer concept. Going to the temple and asking a god to come back is the same as buying a computer. When the computer is turned on, it requires a password, and it is necessary to fill the software. The believer will not find a mage to fill it. Different religions have different specifications. The leader is the CEO, so that everyone can connect. Don't you think that the sound of the server dial is similar to the sound of the chanting in the temple? If the mosquito house was traced before, it is the hospice of the building. This visit to the local gods is like capturing the human imagination of the unknown world after death; but the same point is the political struggle behind the lock. The abandoned construction of weeds is the remnant of all kinds of political parties and the speculation of the land; and the temple has no intervention from all parties? The hidden underground economy is even more amazing. After the self-reliance of Taiwan, the temple flourished. From the early traditional temples to the four famous mountains of Buddhism in the 1990s, it was operated by the group. In recent years, there have even been sightseeing places like the Da'an Gang Mazu Theme Park, which combined with the concept of the Wenchuang Park. The form has always changed, but what remains unchanged is the desire that people cannot stop. "In particular, in the past few years, people have been in a state of exploitation and anxiety. It is easy to ask for help from unknown forces. Many temples will become strange, like Miaochan." Yao Ruizhong bluntly said that everything in Taiwan is "secularized." The direction of development. Art wants to create a park, and religion is also creative, making money become the first goal. "Don't donate God, it is blessing to make a fortune, and then you give back to Him. This is an exchange of benefits! Is this true faith?" It is as complex as human beings, although there are inexhaustible power relations, but the temple is still unique. The characteristic of the untouchables. "Taiwan is the most religious place in the entire Chinese region. Even Japan has no prosperity. If you look at China, they can't talk about it. The Communist Party is atheism, can't worship cows and ghosts, so the mainland only has a consumer culture, like a luxury. Computers and software only have that set. Taiwan is a ragged computer, but it has a variety of software, but because things are too complicated, they often crash." The temple has more than 12,000 temples, 7 More than -11 is enough to prove how religious culture penetrates into the daily life of the people. After the chaotic lanes and telephone poles of various counties and cities, a statue with a thick brow and a round face suddenly came out and became an ordinary landscape. However, perhaps because the faith is too vigorous, the gods and the believers are too close to let Yao Ruizhong see the other side of them. "When God is very hard, dealing with demons and ghosts every day, it is not enough to be kind and kind. God is human, and there is darkness and kindness in human nature." He chose the high-definition black-and-white photo that he is best at, and photographed the coldness of the Buddha statue. In order to highlight the "magic" implied by the gods. "Looking at these photos will be ridiculous at the end. God is like a super computer that satisfies human desires. But the things on the screen, the so-called color and fragrance touch, are illusory images. For me Really, God will not be in the image of God, just like the concept that Google God is not on the computer." Everything is vain, and removing the attachment to the appearance may be the only way out of the eternal robbery. There is a blessing...
