Huge bubbles usually appear in entertaining magic shows. They carry a lot of metaphors. Such dreamlike visual experience often vanishes in an instant, such as the modern Crystal Palace which is a huge bubble, the most ideal symbol of capitalist globalization, modernity also points to the transition, fleeting and accidental. And all that is strong will disappear. At the same time, the formation of these bubbles is caused by the wind blowing, or the formation of the bubbles in the shape of the wind, so it is a description of the wind itself. In the non-daily observation of negative film, things appear out of the usual way for us, which makes us pay more attention to the outline and form itself in the image.
