“I used to have trouble flying, too. I barely left the house, or went in cars. One day, my neighbor told me to come over with my gold jewelry. She put them in a bowl and made me get cold water from the well. When I came back, she covered my jewelry with the water, poured a glass for me, and said, 'There are nutrients in this gold. Now that your stomach is laced with it, you won't be afraid anymore.'
After that, I went everywhere.”
Through A Gilded Stomach的創作緣起來自一段她與奶奶之間的對話，獨特的影像敘事法為觀者帶來了許多想像；我們並不確知文中的鄰居所指何人，但不管是誰，似乎都能從這段帶著魔法般的文字和影像中得到一點安慰。
