Boiled Fish in Hot Chili Oil (2006)

The fish are swimming in the hot pot – although they cannot enjoy the happiness of swimming in the rivers, they can still survive. At the bottom of the hot pot, a television is playing the images of boiling water. We can see the rolling of boiling water when see the fish swimming. Therefore, the value of appreciation replaces that of the practical functions, and a space-time transplacement is created.
