Everything moves. Everything moves on. Just two letters in a phrase completely alters the meaning. To move, or to move on. Both inherently imply motion, but just one letter separates motion from emotion. One seemingly insignificant shift ripples the waters of understanding. Many species of birds famously pick up and move as they migrate south to find respite from the biting temperatures of winter. So too do monarch butterflies move and beat their wings against miles of cutting winds each fall. They move, but they never move on. Why should they have to? What complicates the lives of those that live amongst clouds? Sadly for us, we can move all we want without ever achieving moving on. We still do it. We pack up, and change our mailing address, and think that constitutes a fresh start. The migration of the soul and the heart is not so easily triggered. Move, move, move your hearts. Move on.

The spirit and purpose behind all Liu Dao artworks, literary contributions, and exhibitions is collaboration. The group places emphasis on interaction in order to engage artists, curators and technicians in the process of creating and experiencing art focusing on collective rather than individual values, with the direct aim of benefiting a young Chinese contemporary art scene promotionally and creatively.
An appealing comparison is to the film industry: the island6 gallery acts as the producer for the artists (actors), curators (film directors), while utilising the skills of cameramen, set designers, choreographers, scenographers, and writers. The digital artworks produced by island6 also use postproduction editors, such as Affect Effect experts or sound designers. Each artwork and exhibition has a cast with credits for people of different skills.
