Taken at the most empiric level, Liao Fei has created pieces of mathematical puzzles: his practice tends to find the logic behind various events and to test and reiterate the logic.

This series of works is related to the arrangement of crystal geometry. Circles are regularly arranged in the scope of the grid, they do not overlap or stagger in space. The center of a circle is used as the particle, and then , on the basis of this ,cutting, combing, deformation and composition are made.
