Artist statement:
On November 6th 2012, my daughter was born.
May she grow healthily in 2013.

I could imagine my daughter having long hair as she grows up. I wrote a program to simulate and generate the texture of hair, then applied it to a photo of my daughter. To my surprise, I could see growth from the generated image of her in 2013, I hope everyone will grow beyond their expectations.

藝術家自述:
二零一二年十一月六日,我的女兒出世了。
二零一三年,希望她好好長大。

我可以想像女兒長大後有一把長髮,於是我寫了一個模擬頭髮的程式,把程式應用在女兒的照片上,在生長的畫上,我看到了意想不到的生長(成長),我希望大家在二零一三年都出乎意料的成長。
