I used 36 small squares to create a larger picture in my work ‘3 years, 36 months’. These squares represent the three years (36 months) I’ve spent in the UK as a Chinese. In my work, half of the face was covered with a hand, representing the uncertainty of the future, while the wide-opened eye in the other half represents the courage to face life. We look forward to the future that we have never experienced and yet we are anxious about its uncertainty. My question is how can we achieve balance in life given our circumstance?
