insistent/ 执着/ (zhí zhuo)

A: Did you know that their is a woman in Japan who is really fixated on "transparent color?"

你知道在日本有一个女生对"透明色"很执着吗?

(nǐ zhīdào zài rìběn yǒuyīɡè nǚshēnɡ duì " tòumínɡsè hěn zhízhuo ma?)

B: You mean she likes all transparent things? 

你是说她喜欢一切透明的东西吗?

(nǐ shìshuō tā xǐhuān yīqiē tòumínɡ de dōnɡxī ma?.)

A: Yup. Because this Japanese woman has been fixated on transparent things since she was a child, she uses a camera to record all the transparent things in her life. Water, ice cubes, glass, all these items with no color are all main characters under her lens. 

是的,这个日本女生因为从小就对透明的东西很执着,就用相机记录生活中透明的东西。水,冰块,玻璃这些无色的物体是她镜头的主角。

(shìde, zhèɡè rìběn nǚshēnɡ yīnwéi cónɡxiǎo jiùduì tòumínɡde dōnɡxī hěn zhízhuo, jiùyònɡ xiānɡjī jìlù shēnɡhuózhōnɡ tòumínɡ de dōnɡxī.shuǐ, bīnɡkuài, bōlí zhèxiē wúsède wùtǐ shì tā jìnɡtóu de zhǔjiǎo.)

B: That sounds interesting. But it seems that transparent things are really hard to capture.  

听起来很有趣,但透明的东西似乎不太容易捕捉。

(tīnɡqǐlái hěn yǒuqù, dàn tòumínɡde dōnɡxī sìhū bùtài rónɡyì bǔzhuō.)

A: Yup. This is why she makes her own transparent items, such as transparent jello with cherries on top or handmade transparent glasses with colorless soda water inside. 

是的,因此她会自己制作一些透明色的东西,例如,透明的果冻甜品上面装点着樱花,手工的透明杯子里是无色的苏打水。

(shìde, yīncǐ tāhuì zìjǐ zhìzuò yīxiē tòumínɡsè de dōnɡxī, lìrú, tòumínɡde ɡuǒdònɡ tiánpǐn shànɡmiàn zhuānɡdiǎnzhe yīnɡhuā, shǒuɡōnɡde tòumínɡ bēizǐlǐ shì wúsède sūdǎ shuǐ..)
