“Pull Up The Stake” refers to the nomads’ primary work to remove the tent before their migration, which means starting a new journey. A step away from the centre is a physical method of maintaining spiritual independence in distance. Just as nomads migrate in accordance with the geography, weather and time, instead of placing themselves in any kind of ease, they generally formed their own way of dialogue with nature and life. Try to cope with life’s absolute limit by the change of freedom and the infiniteness of exploration.
"Go with the flow and have no purpose", rejecting the ambiguous relationship between traditional images and truth, and also the ideological obedience. “Something in the world forces us to think”. “Pull Up The Stake” is describing everyone who is not willing to “determine”, it stays alert to macro politics and mainstream discourse, meanwhile, respects the micro life experience and the original emotional touch.
