Lin Yilin Biography

"I was concerned with the materials that I was using from a giving concept, or with the extermination of the social implications or characteristics that the materials carried. I tried to find the extreme limits of the possibility of a piece of ordinary material of an object and create a particular characteristic by combining objects in a strange way. Combination like this can arouse an audience's psychological reaction of surprise, but they are only superficial and have no content… The essence of an amazing world lies in its superficiality."
