Butter Cow

“The word butter derives (via Germanic languages) from the Latin “butyrum”, which is the romanization of the Greek “????????” (bouturon). This may have been a construction meaning “cow-cheese”, from “????” (bous), “ox, cow” + “?????” (turos), “cheese”, but perhaps this is a false etymology of a Scythian word. [From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia]. This is an archive work of open studio project “Butter Cow” that has done in Taipei, Taiwan 2010. I am thinking that the creative process has different steps. While esteeming traditional Zen poem of “Ten Bulls”, this video work presents 10 creative processes / images of a small butter-carving.”
