While speaking to the media, Yanran Chen said, “I enjoy creating unexpected scenes. Whenever I dream of some interesting fragments, I will try my best to recall the scenes and piece them together in my work. I have been sensitive to spinning things ever since I was a child, and my heart beats so fast every time I see them. I am fascinated by scary and mysterious stuff. The concepts of rotating gears, clocks, and owls have been lingering in my head, and they have been very important concepts in my creative life.”
