Video installation. “Fearfully Wonderfully Made 2010
Mixed Media – Cardboard, Paint, video projection, randomized image projection software.

Featured in The Urbanity Project Shanghai. 

This is from an ongoing series of work entitled “transformation of the ordinary”. The piece is an investigation into perception of human value. Juxtaposing images of migrant peoples throughout China with bioinformatic charts regarding the structure of the human genome. These images are randomly projected upon a 30 foot background of cardboard boxes. As vessels which carry goods and services to and from the city they are discarded, re-sold,  recycled and overlooked disappering into the margins. In this case they have a main referential attribute. A necessity,  frequently related to but in most cases forgotten as a wonder of human design. 

The work as a whole comprises varied layers of information relating to how , through our own investigation into the intimate details of human life , one can be inspired to re-evaluate purpose and bring into better focus, the value of humanity which is the cause and effect of the city in its varied functions and relationships. 

 

置装视频:被造奇妙可畏

 此作品来自“普通事物的改造”的持续性系列,此作品是对人的价值的探索。将人像并列于含有人类基因组结构的生物信息学图当中,这些形象被投射到纸箱的背面。它所代表的是那些原来被视为边缘化的,可扔掉的,或可忽略的东西。作为整体,此作品融合了各种信息。这信息联系于人通过探索自己人生细节的各种方式,来得到灵感,重新评估自己的价值,更好的聚焦于人在起初被造的样式和价值。

纸箱代表的是媒介——就是承担产品和服务进出城市的媒介。它们通常被使用,被丢弃,被重新出售,被回收,被忽略为不重要的东西。但事实绝非如此。在此作品中,它们被当作人类的比喻。人类原本是城市(城市的多样功能和关系)当中的因果因素。
