Far from Home -
The suitcase covered with the fabric of Chinese traditional pattern makes it a metaphor of me who comes from Chinese culture background and who is overseas. I have been deeply influenced by Chinese culture and now I learn and absorb American culture. These two cultures arouse a strong culture shock in my mind. The wires covered with Chinese and English newspapers entangle with each other and burst from the suitcase. It seems that my thoughts are mixed with Chinese and English and these two thoughts produce a colorful shock.
