"The only true paradise is a paradises we have lost."----Andre Maurois

They say: "We are living in the same world." But, I don't believe it all along. In this "same world", some people have never seen the sea in their life; some people are atheists; some people eat celery but some disgust it; some children escape the bombs from the air; some children eat ice cream after school. Proust believes that truth is not same as reality. The real world consists of different people with different experiences and emotions of their own. How many lives there were, how many worlds there are. There is no absolute scale for everybody.

"Proust Time" is series of works which are not sequent, all of them are parallel universes. Moreover, they are incomplete. It's because they must be interpreted, dismantled and reconstructed, then they could exist in the consciousness of every viewer. And, just because of its incompleteness, the viewer could not only enjoy and witness them but also join them to build a real world which is unique.
