Quote "All colors are translated into sounds and smells. And they ring infinitely sweet like tones. The wind leafs through the trees, and I know what passes there for words"<the blind woman> Rainer Maria Rilke Hong Kongers were famous for non-stop busy living, yet they couldn't live an enjoyable life. The work reflects and rethink the idea of living, and the quality of living, by allowing people to hold their steps, lie down and feel their breaths reacting with the wind.
