“Somebody to Love”

“Childhood memories”

The above animation shows some stories collected through interaction with the audience. These stories show what happens to people because of their “appearance”. By analysing and reorganizing these real stories, I created this work- children’s comic book.

These stories combine the Chinese myth “Nuwa created mankind” with the Western legend “God gives human life”, and use three different types of fairy tales to convey the concept that “everyone is unique and beautiful”.

“Best Life?”


“Someone’s Love”

The audience can stay in the art gallery to watch these comic stories, or they can buy books for children to read.
