文字说明:
用脚手架、混凝土、铁锨等当下生活中常见的工业时代的材料拼贴成具有人文气息、书卷气的中国传统墨竹图。
近几年,中国城市化进程飞速加快,施工现场、建筑材料随处可见。大批房屋建设,但房价却只涨不减;GDP高速增长,人民幸福指数却一直下降;快节奏的生活让当下都市人厌倦;到处拆迁破坏了已有的邻里社区关系。
我们是否把脚步放慢?是否可以回头看看?比较下传统文人生活模式?这一切不得不值得我们去反思。
作者对在城市化进程中,传统建筑和已有社区生活被破坏的批判,以及大量建设对生态破坏的担忧;另外,表达作者对传统文人气质的向往。

In recent years, China is going through a rapid urbanization progress and the constructional sites and materials are everywhere. The more apartments being construct, the higher the prices goes; GDP is undergoing rapid growth, while the happiness index of residents keeps dropping; so many people living in big cities are tired of fast pace of lifestyle and the demolition of old buildings destroyed the previous community relations.
