Bamboo has long served Eastern countries through its strength as scaffolding to support their developing societies and cultures. The subject of bamboo is referred to as the ladder which brings China up into the 21st Century, into the world of modernity in economy, infrastructure and art. Two LED butterflies drift within the image as electrified reproductions of traditional symbols, which Liu Dao uses as a call to the brightness in China’s future. The LED network also represents a new ladder of multiple dimensions that connects different levels of human minds, platforms and perspectives. [Analynn Bustamente]
