记忆和遗忘就像地下不同时期的文明那样相互交织在一起。考古学家凭着传说,史料,受训练的眼睛和必要的想象力,不断寻找古人留下的痕迹,并重新描述已有的历史。但是我们可能永远也不会知道,接下来我们会找到什么东西。所以,我经常想象自己也能“找到”一些古物,但是与考古学家完全相反的方式-通过制作而不是发掘“古物”,以呈现多重现实或多重历史。

Just like the relics of ancient civilizations depositing and interweaving in stratas, memory always alternates with forgetting. With legends and historical records, with well-trained, acute observation and necessary imagination, the archaeologists search for every trace of the ancients and try to revise the current “version” of our history with new evidence. But we can never predict what will be their next find.  So I often imagine that I could also “find” some antiques, but in a just opposite way of an archaeologist – by fabricating instead of unearthing the “antiques”, a multi-reality or a multi-history will be attained.
