This publication is produced on the occasion of solo exhibiiton of Chinese artist Song Kun of the same title held in Boers-Li Gallery, Beijing from September to October 2008. 

Split into four categories, the rarely , monochrome fragments of life works in this solo show include: a group of paintings of train windows, light boxes engaging with beauty and violence, small graphite sketches, and oil paintings. This separation of works into groups, or perhaps stages, reflects the artist’s concern with finding ways to make the process of life more manageable on a human scale: taking the individual’s internal clock as the basic natural unit of time and moving through life step by step.

Including plates of art works and Song Kun's biography.
