offcut, the edge
“I flew to San Francisco from Shanghai on August 11, 2014. The whole journey extended 9,872 miles, and the flight took 10 hours and 50 minutes. The time difference between Shanghai and San Francisco was 15 hours, so I took three days to get adjusted. I slept for at least ten hours each day. In the following years, I went outside each week”.
This series is based on my daily life and imagination. I keep a distance from the city I live. My community, shopping malls and famous places of interest I have been to reconstructed as an un- real city in images and on memory. The fictitious city that is based on actual place, but transformed by an associative process. With people seeming to appear out of mist,The slightly off-kilter images all connect to something odd but interesting. The images ask viewers to look again, to step closer, to investigate what might be there in that other dimension.
