Yu-Chien Hsiao is interested in the fluidity and unstable and uncertain changes in liquids. At first, she simply wanted to record the state of how it flows, so she recreated this. Because what we care about is the state formed when water is sprayed and atomized, she used a single color as the main color, which is clear and easy to identify, while she selected rice paper as its medium because the surface fibers are smoother than other papers. The reception and presentation are also relatively instant. Different shades of ink are changed in the picture, but it also avoids creating too strong contrast and a sense of space, and try to keep the picture in a flat, stable and harmonious appearance. It is slightly transparent, soft to the touch, incomplete white, and also shows a less clear and warm feeling.

Roughly speaking, regardless of the differences in the techniques used, size, and number of pieces in the work, she tries to make the images in the picture de-imaged, and the non-figurative pictures are easier to understand than the figurative patterns. It is more difficult in the art. Without the criteria that can be used as a reference with the specific images and objects visible to the naked eye in the real world, the viewer will be forced to think from the material itself or the size and other conditions, and at the same time, the atmosphere of the medium will become the composition. a major element of the work.

In the age of vision, changes in the mode of production affect the way of human life, which in turn affects the way humans understand society. Matter is interpreted as a symbol. When a symbol of human commonality is used, universality exists. In it, the uniqueness of the artist's motives for using the medium is gradually diminished at the same time. Therefore, how to deal with paper and express the atmosphere of paper is to be discussed through creation. Rice paper has long been used as a carrier for cultural dissemination, poetry, calligraphy, painting, literati popularity, etc. Under the catalysis of time, when this object deviates from the era when it was invented, and inherits the sense of the times and historical significance at that time. The rice paper has formed its own characteristics and atmosphere. Through the creator's technique, the rice paper is extracted from the existing frame as a carrier, expressed with the characteristics of the media itself, in addition to the presentation of visual beauty, it also tries to change the existing viewing mode and create new expressions other than the inherent.
