The work is made of around 200 images, the sources of which come from the cannons of Western art history. These familiar images have constructed our fundamental understandings of modern and contemporary art. The random and arbitrary changes and interpretations applied to these images have generated new meanings of these cannons.

This random reconstruction is inspired by Deconstructionism. The idealist complex of re-evaluating cannons is still a prevailing idea in contemporary cultural system. From a temporal perspective, languages, visual forms, beliefs, organization, Internet, system, and academic standards, and authorities, are not self-sustained structures of full growth, but only fragmented concepts. History, therefore, is not singular or unchangeable, so are our understandings.
