Song pays attention to the body as the medium of expression in his artistic creation. Song believes that political attribute is buried the intensity of ideology in social body. The sensuality of the body, the temperature derived from emotion and pain forming fundamental support for his creation. Warmth, hidden in the works of minimalist style, creates certain unknown relationship among the physical, the emotional and the material. Often, "wrong" judgment happens due to defamiliarization cognition and dissociation of experience in the order of inertia, causing intentional damage to the emotion as well as the body. Song hopes to establish new order based on the existing system when outputting art in addition to exploring the relationship between art and society.
