Yuan Goang-Ming is highly adept at combining symbolic metaphors with technological media. His works not only vividly illustrate contemporary human conditions, but also poetically express human perception and consciousness. His early experiments on images were inspired by experimental film and hand-held video camera. In this period, he not only engaged in developing new forms of image narratives, but also focused on the shift of meaning caused by the deliberate dislocation between image and installation in his video artworks. His experiments continued until the mid-1990s. On the Way Home (1989) was created within this context.
