"Liu Ding's works often create a special set of circumstances for the audience, using various forms and techniques to add to the artwork's dramatic feel. The audience may be drawn down the wrong path, or lost within the fragmented presentation of social and individual spiritual expression. And all rules are hypothetical; the impenetrable labyrinth better represents the spiritual reality than a straight path does. Because of this, the viewer will surely be "drawn down the wrong path", which is the only way to draw closer to the "truth". Liu Ding's "labyrinth" is multidimensional, even dangerously ulterior in motive. He has inadvertently established a spiritual utopia through this method, moreover, he has been inadvertently repeating allusions to the "nihility". The dramatized instalment has taken pains to dilute the latent influence of speech, and the "wrong path" has just happened to dissolve the possibility of "ambiguity" - Liu Ding's job is to do his best to draw closer to history, "naked", to attain the goal of rethinking."
Some parts of the text are using sexual language and some works are erotic, so please take care before you show it to juvenile.
