The Unicorn’s Travelogue (2014)


A unicorn gallops and searches in a vast desert of people, targeting something higher in value and more precious than what the casual traveler would aim for. The something that the “unicorn” seeks for is “the present”, and it is to be kept safely with the unicorn’s belongings.

Item #5

  • Title:Imperfect
  • Item Synopsis / Program Notes:

    Is life a “tragedy” or a “comedy”? Some situations we face in life may not be perfect, or the expectations of life and self-esteem may not meet eye to eye. How do we then live an imperfect life? To confront, to avoid, to accept, or to compromise? Ultimately, should we choose “tragedy” which represents a pessimistic reality, or “comedy” which sees life as a light-hearted joke?
