In the recent work, He use rice as a morpheme. In the refined screen filled with the line-up of shapes reminding of infinitude or monochrome mood, the spirituality is continued. The concepts that are hard to be standardized such as nothing, nought, and emptiness could be the object of containing. Highlighting the feeling of expanding outside the screen in the horizontal structure, induces the possibility of setting up the infinitude. He does want to carefully capture the middle piece between the beginning and end of the shape. This middle could be finite as a piece of infinitude, and the variation of work could be infinite. No matter which colors coexist, it aims for a soft connection. If it is a landscape, it is certainly the sky, sea, or everything. And the color strip on the screen is working as the horizon which is the axis of the event as a sign informing an important event like sunrise. If it is the boundary between ideologies or generations, it means absorption and assimilation, and understanding and communication. The title ‘Cloud’ not only implies something the most natural floating in the sky but also symbolizes the information repository shared in modern digital culture. The repository is filled with rice-shaped particles, which is working as a medium for the relation between material and culture. When a point is a geometric and conceptual element, rice could be viewed as an organic and material element. He said, “I aim to abstract the reality of nature through the morpheme of rice.”
