In this exhibition, Yao Hai uses acrylic as the main material for his works. He attempts to use a single material as a cornerstone to unlock all cognition in order to construct and develop the works. By exploring the evolution and transformation of a specific material, he acquires an in-depth understanding of the material itself and thereby improving self-perception and raising the ability to perceive the world.
Yao Hai believes that any material has a life of its own. They exist in various forms of energy, and the energy will neither be produced nor perished. It will only transform. In the exhibition, Yao Hai uses acrylic material to create unidentified objects in different shapes suspended throughout the exhibition space, with some scattered on the ground, in order to construct an energy field beyond the boundaries so as to physically confront the viewer, allowing them to experience the familiar strange world.
