WHAT IS LOVE?

.

Each of us has different answers. In my opinion, love is more of a factor in the details of our lives than in the case of making pledges. Our life is inseparable from the material, also the expression of love. In love, we often use a variety of small gifts to express the emotion for each other, different items appear in different occasions, carrying different meanings. Then, that item will appear in our usual life scene for a long time, reminding us of those special moments and spaces.

There are also a variety of small gifts between me and my girlfriend, and then these little gifts are scattered in every corner of our room, such as sofas, tables, beds and even ceilings. Over time, these small gifts that have come into my life at specific times gradually become integrated into the environment and form an integral part of my room. Whenever I see them, I will remember specific sweet moment. These meaningful objects appear particularly interesting and vivid in a small space. However, at the same time, we may always neglect the existence of these objects, forget to recall the happiness of life, and be trapped in the endless vortex of working and studying.

So, I intend to record those gifts at home. Although each of them is static, it always invites people to think of dynamic scenes of life. Dolls on the couch, piggy bank on the desk, toy dog ​​on the bed, flowers on the dining-table, Polaroid on the small end table, balloons on the ceiling, jewelery cups on the coffee table, and champagne glasses and candles in the cupboard. Each of them was separated from things nearby, highlighted under the spotlight, and presented in the center of our sight. In this way, the individual meaning of each gift has been emphasized, these special memories have been retrieved.

Love exists in loving and memorizing.
