The inspiration of this work draws from the street prostitutes Ouyang Chun saw while he was wandering on the streets in the city years ago. What caught his eyes was those flying moths around the street light under which those prostitutes stood. In Chinese, the idiom “moths into flames” means “irresistibly and dangerously attracted to something or someone even it may end with destruction and death”. To Ouyang Chun, the street view at that moment was a depiction of the surrender to life and social inferiority.
