For Cai Yaling, these materials are closely related to her emotional experience and everyday life. They are not only a gift to bid farewell to her cruel youth, but also a trace of time. From being an art student to being a wife and a mother, Cai Yaling continues to understand and express the multiple relationships between people, society and life, from her own perspective of life. She further combines these relationships with everyday objects, then processes, enlarges, and decomposes until they resonate with the viewer.
