SUMMARY :

Fascinated with the piece of Andy Warhol's death and disaster series, the Fallen Body (1967), an image of a woman who fell from the 86 stories of Empire State Building, causing me to contemplate what makes a person possessed with such desire? And why is it a popular way to end one's life in many of the capitalized cities? In the book Madness and Civilization, Foucault asked the fundamental question of "what is the qualitative distinction between sanity and insanity?" This leads him to make the extraordinary claim that the pathologies of madness, its treatment as a disease, are a disease of the mordern era itself. Madness is the rupture of mind and body; it appears to be possessed and uncontrollable. In my work, the jumping on a trapoline is a metaphor of an act of "jump", it simulates an unspeakable desire, and the hauntingly repeating movements as if somebody shackled in a cruse.
