Breathe is just Breathe in an absurd world.”
—— Sam He
Interesting, absurd, weird, reflective, and diverse constitute the main tone of Sam He’s works. Through her work Toilet Paper Escape and Nobody Knows as well as relevant videos produced, it can be perceived that Sam He constantly keeps intimate connect with the life and reflection on it, and injected her witty and humorous ideas. When Sam He walks on the earth with her own ideas, it was like an ideological escape. In the collision with the rapid shifts and structural transformations of today's society, she constructs a multi-dimensional virtual space beyond time and space, which carries not only her response to the world she lives, but also invites the audiences to experience this unreal whimsy. I can’t help thinking, whether the absurdity of 2020 has collided with it?
