“A Poetic Beach”
Consciousness breeds new thinking/Melancholy beyond emotional calculation is anything but a dream/As loneliness and desolation reverberate throughout the world/in the graveyard of deconstruction/A sheer coldness unbearable by any soul emerges/The trace of a flaming silhouette/Is found on the tombstones of future/A glamorizing paradise in the east/Is the home of a stretch of beach praised in many poems/Which bear witness to the history of abstract thinking.
Dabeiyuzhou is particularly popular with Generation Z for its cyberpunk artwork. He is known as the “oriental cyborg” and has a large following in China. In 2019 he started the series “Text Gene Project“. As the initiator of Text NFT, the”Text Gene Project“not on text, but a combination of text, image and human voice.
