Repeated deliberation, fan fu tui qiao, (反复推敲) is said of a person who racks his brains to find the right words, or who ruminates on a problem over and over again. Repetition in nature is a common sight and yet in humans it’s seen as compulsive behavior. Look around you, there’s repetition and patterns everywhere you see, from hanging poultry to bicycle wire wheels! And so, who really cares about the absurdity of her actions, they’re hers after all. Hickam’s dictum would say she can hang, take down, and re-hang clothes as many times as she damn well pleases. Throughout Jing’an district, streets, buildings and alleyways are painted with colorful clothes and wild patterns. These clothes lines, often homemade simple contraptions, act as paper curtains showcasing the ultimate street performance. That’s how the saying goes isn’t it? Life imitates art and art imitates life. I guess Occam was right after all, sometimes the best answer is the simplest one. So sit back, the show is about to start.
