"These works were sourced from my photos taken in these years. They were piled up like chicken ribs, so I operated on them, like a surgeon. I applied various methods according to different pictures: engraving, rubbing, curling, or making a photography installation with other objects. I tried all I can do to save these pictures by giving them new meanings. Each picture is printed by hand. I look them over and over to explore their inner dramatic structures, or even another space. This creation blurs the boundary between a photo's touch experience and cognitive experience. The photo's dimension was extended. You may mistake the picture for a painting. I focus on expressing the image's quality of form and questioning the method of seeing it. In this way some photos escaped from its original directing relationship. When the image is regarded as a pure object, the print becomes a tangible place."——Cai Dongdong
