Yi Xin Tong



The creation of Yi Xin Tong is like a modern wanderer, wandering in the city, collecting pieces of daily life and converting to poetry. Fascinated by taking some heroic adventure, romance and absurd things, seems to follow one’s inclinations, don’t pursue in the form of a delicate, is the result of careful layout, hidden under the ordinary surface layers of the language of poetry. Yi Xin Tong create objects, moving images, and sound to discover human culture’s dynamic relationship with nature at a geological scale. His work explores the polymorphic quality of both living and non-living beings, and with a wry sense of humor, instigates noise for societal beliefs in value, decency, and rationality.
