《送給秋天的頸鍊》

我在想,如果一條頸鍊只有意念沒有實物會怎樣?

春天的時候樹葉都一起來到這個世界,但到了十一月的深秋卻一片片孤獨地離去,枯枝上只有小數在支撐住、堅守住。我用針線將僅有的樹葉都穿起,首尾連起做成頸鍊,當最後一片葉都無法支撐的時候,他們就會一起落下變成真正的頸鍊同時消失。

然後,明年春天一定會有更多樹葉會回來。

"A Gift of Necklace to Autumn"

I was thinking, what if there’s a necklace appears conceptually but without a concrete object?

In spring, all leaves grow with vitality. Time passes, cycle comes along. In late autumn, the leaves fall one by one. Loneliness is around the few leaves standing still on the tree.

I try to stitch up the bare leaves with needle and thread, tighting the end-to-end to be a necklace. Until the moment of the very last leaf falls, the leaves will fall together, become a real "necklace" but also disappear in the meanwhile.

And then, next year, for sure more leaves will come back in spring.
