In 2006, a new generation of artists tried to develop a new language that can be part of our every-day living, rather than restricted by unchangeable classical procedures. The clues of these can be tracked in the previous Taipei Biennials, like Great Theatre of the World,Do You Believe in Reality?, and also Dirty Yoga in 2006.

It re-situate in a relationship of art-as-reality. In retelling of current living conditions, it expresses a view of contemporary world. Our society might exist in a methodology of constant re-interpretation layering. Medium of our mental extension angles on times of change and flow, and the shifting forms and mediums in art-making. Some recent artworks also often show trends for document and documentation, such as in Yi Jen-Jen photography, document files, or objects. It points to a journey, a documentation, an environment or an event, etc.. In these series of practices, constructions or relations, they re-form a way of reflecting reality. The responses in Post Document presented here describe the process of a series of signs in genetics happenings.
