One’s life might be full of desires for getting successes, this is especially pronounced in a rapidly transforming society, where quick changes stimulate individual’s strong desires to climb on socioeconomic ladder. Melted red-colored hot glue threads, as the symbol of eagerness and desires, are intertwined into lace-like surface/structure and configured into a ladder shape. The contrast created by the juxtaposition of unreliableness and ladder’s intended use opens up questions and invites viewers’ personal interpretation. Laced structure can also play with light for interesting shadow effects.
