Envelope, to me, is a living form that connects one another and collects emotions. Gradually in my artistic creation, the envelop exceeded its means as mere communication; the tangible words, scent of paper, expressive and candid sentences as well as unique handwriting, reflect the vicissitudes of life. Envelope, as a carrier for text, intuitively carries stories between people. Though we are parted, an envelop becomes another form of life to connect us.
