Title:

The Shortcut to the Systematic Life: Superficial Life

Author: Tsui Kuang-Yu
Description:

Extending from the series “Eighteen Copper Guardians in Shao-Lin Temple and Penetration,” I transform the idea of mimicry into systematic adaptation to various circumstances in this work. To change one’s outfit according to the outside environment is like a chameleon-like camouflage. It is also the shortcut to penetrate different living circles. The work connotes the absurdity of reflection on reality, and mocks the different personalities that arise when living environments change.
