about this work
"When information is disseminated it is necessarily misapprehended by its recipients.  The funny thing is we are constantly in a state of exploring stories and the details within them, but finally it turns out we’re only looking for a reason to comfort ourselves.  In front of us is a monochrome of black and white depicting an ambiguous figure.  Actually, that’s it.  I think one misunderstands it because its exterior appears complex."
(Weigang Gao, 2012)
