Toys are both extremely important and unforgettable to me as they accompanied my childhood. My emotions towards them are very special. When I was a child I thought that toys had a life, providing mutual warmth and love; I believed that they kept on living even when I wasn’t at their side.
Up until today I still remember the time I spent with my childhood toys and hope to revisit my childhood in my work. Thus in this piece I placed my childhood toys into a household electronic utility from our home dating from the same period. As the viewer approaches the work, a projection is displayed on the wall and the electronic utility gradually activates, simultaneously activating the toys. When the viewer leaves the range of the work, the toys’ performance ends and the electronic utility turns off. I hope to share this beautiful childhood memory with you all, with the wish that perhaps you will remember the times when you were accompanied by your childhood toys.
