'Failed' Welding

Planting a native culture in a foreign land causes conflicts of values in life. Countless mistakes, self-doubts and understandings will finally reduce cognitive differences among people and develop an extraordinary self-esteem. In the welding process of metal, solder joints are considered as faults influencing the beauty and should be hidden behind the form of object. However, the repetition of making solder joints is similar with several persistent attempts. Accumulated solder joints are just like lots of failures, but in the end they actually shape the unique texture and appearance. Failure becomes a treasured chance to reverse what we take for granted.
