Sometimes people are influenced by personal emotions in daily life and a certain emotion may last for a period. I imagine that my different emotions are like visible boxes. When I am in a certain emotion, what does the box looks like and what happened on the inside of the box? 

The Box of Emotions this series all included woodcut, ceramics, wordless picture book. The picture book is composed of a series of boxes representing different emotions, including curiosity about the unknown world, fear about the unfamiliar environment, the self-protection brought by uncertainties, the yearning for beautiful things, and the exploration for various possibilities of the future. In the end, the box dissipates and will happen new stories and emotions somewhere. 

I composed this series of emotions as a narratively wordless picture book, the reason for choosing these emotions is that these emotions can express most of my reactions and attitudes to the external environment. Here, the accordion wordless picture book serves as a carrier to presents my private emotions in a parallel way.
