"Pom Pom Styrofoam" (蓬蓬塑料坦克)
"Pom Pom Styrofoam" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
We all carry some sort of imaginary baggage wherever we go. It can weigh you down, or keep you grounded. It’s all a matter of perspective, as with most things in life. The Stoics teach us that reason precedes happiness, meaning the quality of our life experience begins with our interpretation of it. It’s a powerful realization to know you’re in control, the one behind the wheel, navigating through the dense traffic. Philosopher Marcus Aurelius reminds himself, “For it was not outside me, but within me, in my judgements.” We must resolve to see things in a different light, try it and you’ll feel the weight suddenly change. Some use their hands or a fictitious backpack, others have enough styrofoam boxes to meticulously pack a sanlunche (三轮车) like a careful stacking and balancing performance act. At the end of the day that’s what it comes down to, the grand show! Entertaining the masses! Staging the most amazing display on Earth! And it’s true, you do carry it well. Now give us a smile, you’re on camera!
