According to the scientific research, a human being will lose 21 grams weight after death. Therefore it is taken granted that human beings have souls. Souls are substantial and representable. The weight of souls is 21 grams. In this video, the contrast between bloody corpse and pale white souls is like a suspending, rootless clump, resisting against gravity but faiiling and falling to earth. The artist attempts to catch the moment that soul departs from flesh. In the unique aesthetic point of view, he guides viewers to think and confront gracefully the big issue of living for everyone.
