創作理念 Artist Statement
There is no hate without love. The third and only alternative is grief. Don’t bother throwing things away because memory needs no media. My voice, texture and smell will turn into your magical realism. Suicide for love is a bad joke I should not have told you. If afterworld does exist, I will definitely come back for you as a ghost. If not, please allow the countless moments we shared to breeze in your dark night and navigate your hopeless drifting. After all, to live however is the most romantic thing you can do for me – that’s what our love is for.
