Introduction

Casual Reflections on Leisurely Pleasures (Xianqing Ouji,also translated as Casual Expressions of Idle Feelings) written in 17th was the first work in Chinese literature dedicated to le bon goût, documenting the art, design, and lifestyle of the times. Taking Casual Reflections as a starting point, director WANG Chia-ming sets out in an exploration of self-coordination during times of upheaval, quoting profusely from LI Yu’s other works to peer into his creative soul.
