This series of narrative or non-narrative videos represent the surface of the world in slow or instant manner. The WORLD has no interior, inside, or inmost region, but a rolling sheet which content phenomena forms a huge spiral structure. Through these videos, we clearly can see anything -- as the etymology of video is "videō"(I see) -- presented in an apparent way. We see, just like we walk, even into the inferno, Dante still walked "on" the surface. Ignoring the concept of "insight", but observing upon the sheet of the living, the plane of the time.

Daily exercise


Q. How would you describe self-cultivation?

Self-cultivation -- daily reflexive acts
A workout -- actions that are done repeatedly in search of precision

Upon waking up, I sit in front of a water hose with a drowsy mind, intense light shines on my optic nerves and give the eye lens a beating. In this way my visionary muscles get a workout, and my facial nerves are stimulated.

My body is a vessel through which I explore this world; how can i play with it, operate it, there is so much that can be said; let us begin by beating the lens with a water hose.

Q. 形容你是怎麼看待「修行」這件事?

修行 - 每日的自然反射動作
鍛鍊 - 會一再重複進行的動作,以求一個精準。

Thousand Character Classic


Step 1: Polish and Prepare

The first step of carving is to smooth the stone and its surface.
Use #600 sandpaper to grind up the surface, then move on to #1000, #1500, and #2000 for more detailed work. Add water intermittently during this process to help smooth out the texture. When the stone surface becomes very fine, use #3000 and #5000 sandpaper for final polish.The stone has become a seal. It is ready.

Step 2: Write, words carved in the bones and engraved in the heart

Good words are carved with sincerity to express positivity and to move the soul. Words below such caliber are not worthy to be passed on.

Step 3: Carve, to be bold and conscious

The most important part of carving a seal is knife work. Be bold and stay conscious. There are many methods of carving; listen to your mind and channel your thoughts through the motion of your hands. See the engraving slowly emerge on the 1 inch square seal.  Inhale, exhale. Listen to the collapsing sound of carving.

Step 4: Check every stroke, every detail and make modifications

Be patient, check, examine and process every detail. Sand down the stubbornness, polish your merits, add in some personality, be well-read, be bold, stay patient, and work towards a positive result.

The process of carving is about self-fulfillment--it is mundane and requires self-discipline. Those who learn to inhale and exhale at ease can master the art of the carving.

 果珍李柰,菜重芥薑 (guo zhen li nai, cai zhong jie jiang) is a phrase from the Thousand Character Classic, a Chinese epic poem of exactly 1000 words; each word in the poem only appears once, composed in four line rhyming stanza structure. The classic is based on Confucius thought and narrates a range of topics, including astronomy, geography, social studies, history, ethics and governance of the family.

 The phrase 果珍李柰,菜重芥薑 literally translates as: the crab apple and the plum are the most precious of all fruit; the mustard leaf and ginger are the most important of all vegetables. The phrase points to the health benefits that plants can bring to a person’s life.

 果珍李柰,菜重芥薑是《千字文》裡的其中一句短語。《千字文》以儒家思想為主體,兼納天文地理、社會歷史及君子治家處身之道。是一篇由一千個不重複的漢字組成的一首四言長詩。暇瑕設定在今年內完成《千字文》的篆刻計畫。

 果珍李柰,菜重芥薑的白話解釋:在水果裡最珍貴的就是李子和柰子,而蔬菜裡最重要的就是芥菜和薑。兩句話表達了植物對人們生活健康的作用。

Hyper Dimension of Illusion

Shark Lin

Self-cultivation is a process of exploring dimension of a specific topic. In the process, I accidentally step into a bottomless pit of mathematics, design, art, film, games, music, new media, and all the subversive fun of super-experiencing the world. There are always discoveries to be made every day.


☯ Shark Lin
Lin discovered the delight of mathematics one boring morning in middle school second grade, while attending a self-study class. Lin is currently involved in mathematics research, artistic creation, interviews, popular science writing and exhibition planning. Instead of studying math or learning art, Lin reflects upon various mathematical and artistic gestures from multiple perspectives, in hopes to bring some delight into the world.Lin’s math-art works have been exhibited at Stockholm Bridges (2018), IMAGINARY (2017), Pan Knowledge Festival (2016), On-site, Visual (2015、2016). Lin's curatorial projects include Dimension of Illusion (2018) , The Geometric Artworks of Wu Kyun Ying (2017) , Polyhedron Making (2017).

*Dimension of Illusion, an art exhibition curated by Shark Lin, will run until December 31st at EnterSpace, Taipei.
