Through the various media from painting, land art projects, performance, animation to writing, LIN Chuan-Chu found a complex yet complete interdisciplinary art inwardness to inquire into the nature of the flow within existence. Composed of nature, farming, literati culture as well as awareness of Buddhism, his creations constructed "A Man's History" which is a complicated, authentic and separated being, attempting to unearth the shared themes lying in his family and the whole society at the time.
