The meaning behind this idiom refers that the process of forming rice grains, required daily hardship, the current resources we enjoy relying on the results of many people's efforts. Therefore, we must know how to cherish and not waste. This work purposely converted this idiom into a visual performance.The action of planting one rice grain in the soil, then pouring three buckets of water onto the soil mirrors to the idiom itself.
