A Vessel of Ruins

Awakening of the Body /肉體之醒覺

The man confronts the stark existence of mankind. One stands on the wasted land of modernity. It reflects the scene where all was burned and destroyed by a larger power. How does this man find his way out of this labyrinth? Some have said the work has a prediction of the Fukushima disaster that attacked the country the following year.
