  A hidden world that consists of multifold layers is opened up by secrets which functions as a critical key. Secrets cannot survive in ordinary states, and this is what makes them secretive. At the same time, secrets are also “relative” and capable of swapping positions. The line where something could either be told or untold is an elusive place that spins and shakes, and it is nowhere to be found within the matrix’s grand structure. As I read these notes in solitude at night, the words soar and collide with my own consciousness, and the associations prompted instantly lead to the production of a copious number of images, as a poem of the masses is composed through my body.
Some of the notes are linked together to resemble the snake’s primordial image. The snake is a living creature that holds both positive and negative connotations in different religions. Its unique image and striking features are prominent and unforgettable. On the notes are some words that describe that ambiguous snake in the mind, including dermatological disorders of the snake skin, theft, stealing eggs to eat, and being visually impaired but uses its body to detect its targets, etc.
At the exhibition space is a small desk where audiences could write down secrets on new pieces of notepaper and post them on a wall. By the wall is an acrylic box for collecting the notepapers. A finished script of secrets is made available on the desk for people to flip through, as they write down their own secrets to be posted on the wall. A video is produced based on the notes written by the participants, with footage captured at as many sites as possible that are mentioned in the notes. The artist’s own thoughts whilst reading the notes are interspersed throughout the video, with the shooting process began with an initial sense of hesitation leading to pre-contemplated images and then onto notes with details that could be captured in the video format. A spotlight is installed at the exhibition space, and when someone sits down to write down his or her secret, the spotlight would turn off, and the lamp by the desk would light up.
