The inspiration for this project comes from the combination of surrealism and World War I. During the research process, I was inspired by surrealism’s focus on political issues and responded to the “Blank Paper Movement” in China caused by the epidemic at that time. Through poetry and painting, I depicted the bloody, dreamlike, and heroic scenes of war in surrealism, hoping to awaken the audience’s attention to not only hot weapons warfare but also the political war hidden under the surface of prosperity. Finally, based on this, I created this wearable installation.
