Wen-Cheng, Wei is a recorder player and a composer. He is convinced that everything and everything happening has its own unique words and rhythms, which lead to the birth of music.
Being fond of animals, he keeps an invisible golden fish named “Xiao-Xiao”, which means small and an invisible snake named“Xiao-Ching”, which means blue mixing with a little bit green. They are his muse when composing and writing poetry.
Wen-Cheng lives and studies in Austria currently.
He was born in Taichung, Taiwan, 1999.
I used to keep some golden fish. Watching them swaying the fins and reflecting lights from the scales in the jar was the thing I did daily at the time.
It seems like they were floating in the still as the stars polishing outer space. Everything behind the jar was twisted by the water and become vague as the colors on Vincent Willem van Gogh`s paintings.
Sometimes I dream of my fish swimming around me although they have already become stars hanging above. The beauty of blur is the thing I will never forget.
Lying down in the water, the sight is concentrated like a kaleidoscope. You may realize the instable, brilliant texture of fish, light and water which I transferred into “The Golden Fish.”
Hope you enjoy it! 🙂
