Chang Ko-Chi was born in 1950 and was primarily influenced creatively by the 1970s growing up. The art sphere of the 1970s was epitomized by a wish to evolve and strengthen itself, as a response to the many conflicts of the previous decade. One of the most central movement of the 1970s was Conceptualism, which appeared as an offshoot of Minimalism, while the experimental, creative voyage of Process art materialized by combining essential aspects of Conceptualism with further considerations on art itself.

Using stone, glass, cotton, sponge, wood, oil and water, they aimed to create life to artworks that would accentuate the ephemeral state of these various elements and their surroundings, playing with their interdependency.
