Are we getting ready for the great days or are we living in the great days, or the great days would never come back again?

This work consists of 3 video works and a flagship store installation."Great Days" discusses about the commodification of increasing multiple choices, the endless copy and reproduction of information. I want to share some thoughts about how human behavior is affected in consumer society, how could we respont to our emotion personally and be responsible for our choices morality in the meantime.

我们现在就在伟大的日子中,准备伟大的日子,并延伸创造着伟大的日子。可用的物品不停被复制、更新,我们有无数选择权。人们可以同时处在不同现实中,信息和叙事的虚拟化。这些变化对我们的行为和记忆有着改造,工业在创造新的人类。很多事情我们并不需要完全对所选负责,我们可以替换选择或者删除曾经所选然后继续、继续。我想提供一种当代生活的观点和情绪,关于它更迭不停背后的道德影响和对个人生活的改造。(《伟大的日子》六部分单屏幕视频由李亭葳改写,参考自唐纳德巴塞尔姆的同名小说, 朗读者:Elysha Chang)
