When I was watching this video that I saw a famous painting in my mind where I saw in MOMA and named The Piano Lesson by Henri Matisse. When you The color of the whole painting gives a feeling of freezing and depressive. The mechanical metronome main color are snow white metallic sliver and warm gray. The metronome is a pyramid composed of thin lines, which located lower right- hand corner. The value of the mechanical metronome is dull color. In the end of the video have a dancer who was dancing under a boring work machine. It’s just seem as the sculpture of The Piano Lesson, which no longer alive.

  • find your beach

I really love this articleSince I was little, I always say the brilliant scene of NYC in movie. Too many teenagers have a dream of New York, work in NY, work for NY.  New York has no sky in my impression, as if there is a large chandelier with automatic switching. I don’t ever know how to enjoy the blue sky in this city that can not be completely opened by the window. Two days ago, I have a conversation with my friend in the yellow cab. We all think that we really hard to find what we really want and pursue in NY. We are too easy to lose ourselves in this francium empire.  If you want to have a beach with enough sunlight, it’s really too difficult. Slowly, your dreams will gradually become a bubble. In this year I always feel like that I am living a place which is a time control console.

The life in NY is like an ordinary watch, which rotates according to time as same as yesterday, also just like the ballet dancer in that video, she has  rigid dance posture, the same movement  at same time, that is so similar as our daily life in New York, day after day.  I believe that beauty is pain and they are necessity to live. Maybe they are born cheap in an impoverished environment. That is the reason why the life is never stable as wood and never will be.If you look closely, I guarantee you can see the different that the machine, bold outlines tracing my curvy body. She was trying to mix with the environment, however she can’t do nothing, she represents the workers who also will work day after day. She’s always rotating with the same movements as last moment, people’s life becomes mechanical and drab. The machines need electricity, and the workers in this factory are just a machine that need oxygen and breathes.
