Yuwen did not go to the river as the lead actor in the drama. Observing the life in the river, she was enmeshed in a web of life rife with leading actors, each one equal in the unfolding drama. This series is made from multiple layers of paper to represent the deep layers of nature. Yuwen dyed each page one by one, glued them into a thick stack and then ground down into the layers to create her images. The repetitive work tied together past and present into a new set of memories. Each layer represents a slice of time. The process of grinding into the stack revealed lines that took on the images of the different scenes from the stream. Within the series are 3 pieces titled Stones Murmuring I, II, and III. The river stones seemed to be murmuring to themselves, just beyond comprehensibility. To represent their murmuring, each layer of paper in this series is a page from a Chinese English dictionary. The resulting visible fragments of words are like the sounds of the river stones talking, clearly language but not quite readable.
