“Conservation” 對話– 117x81cm- Oil on Canvas, 2009
A bizzare twist on the recycling motif. Taking long hot showers is a comfortable habit of Western indulgence that wastes both water and energy. How many times can the water be cleaned, processed, purged and reused? Will our pursuit of sterilization and personal cleanliness lead to our own ruination? Would taking less showers paradoxically be the ‘clean’ choice?
