Combining sixteen video pieces, played in order via projector as if playing a series of films, and four independent videos played via television – welcome to "link" world. The Chinese pronunciation of my name, Lin Ke, is similar to the English word "link". This coincidence corresponds to how I make my art-works – mouse-clicking to link all kinds of random images, thus keeping a record of my thoughts. In computer operating systems, behind each movement we make lies a series of hidden codes. Clicking the links that appear in windows allows a part of myself, my hand, to extend into the digital world. Without a mouse and keyboard, I can't capture them.
