New tumblr launched! “YAY!” for horizontal infinite scroll! And up to the date I finished the basic coding, I had a collection of 50+ poems ;) the number is still growing!
I just coded this new tumblr: http://paviningperception.tumblr.com/ as an individual site specifically for the poems and lyrics I compose in Chinese. I have moved all my Chinese writings to the new site, so that the large number of Chinese characters will no longer mingle with my other works to create confusions.
ugh. sorry, no translations available. If you can’t read Chinese - too bad :( Well, just stay on this page. Most updates here will be in English. :D

Described by The Times as “Asia’s leading contemporary dance theatre”, Cloud Gate’s repertoire has its roots firmly in the myths, folklore and aesthetics of the East. “Energy flows as water, while the spirit shines as the moon”: this description of the ideal state for a Tai Chi practitioner was one of the starting points for this astonishing production.
Following last month’s release of Bamboo Dream featuring the music of Arvo Part, celebrated choreographer Lin Hwai-min has selected compositions from suites for solo cello by Johann Sebastian Bach, combining his music with dance movements derived from the Chinese martial arts of Tai Chi.
During this breathtaking performance, water sweeps across the stage and is flicked in arcs from the dancers’ moving arms and feet. The sound of splashing water mingles with Bach’s music as the dancers throw themselves on the stage, gliding on the fine film of liquid. An aesthetically scintillating performance with remarkable studio production.
The museum art viewing experience is rarely one of context. Art works’ milieu is abandoned and replaced with the white box. One way to reconnect to the roots of art pieces is by telling the stories of its journeys. Masterpieces travel from artists’ studios to collectors, to museums and beyond. Artists collect inspiration from their associations to home and their journeys. In the same way travel plays an important role in art, the museum goers want to be transported during a visit.
Art as Tour Guide, recalls the golden age of travel. When ocean liners and luggage trunks were common place and you didn’t have to pay for a hot meal on an airplane. The goal of this exhibit is to bring visitors on a expedition, allowing them to explore the origins and travels of featured artists. The design of the exhibit uses multi-sensual experiences, including strong visual graphics as a method in leading visitors on their tour of the art realm.
