Saw this image in a newspaper recently and apart from Liu Bolin's work being very interesting in itself, this picture in particular struck me. What an odd composition and subject to use. And somehow all the more in keeping and better for it. Read his words on the work. Not sure whether it's the translation or his grasp of English but he has a rather fine way of putting things.
Human beings are not animals! Because human beings do not know how to protect themselves.
Each person chooses his/her own way in the process of contacting outside world. I choose to merge myself into the environment. Saying that I am disappeared in the environment, it would be better to say that the environment has licked me up and I can not choose active and passive relationship.
The mental enthrallment is more terrible than the physical disappearance.
In the environment of emphasizing cultural heritage, concealment is actually no place to hide.
