zhú mù nòng/The Riverside

Super 8mm Film, 3 minutes,

"The Riverside" walks along the Lianxi river to the Grand Canal Lianshi, capturing the riverside in single frames with the technique of zooming in and out of each image as it passes through a ghost theater, ancestral dwellings to be demolished, a privatized state-owned factory, and a freshly built "historic town". Using the strategy of in-camera editing, a new texture is shaped while still images are transformed into moving images, reflecting the process by which memory is generated in the rapidly changing outside world. This is another work finished at Lianshi, Zhejiang, China, where the Liangzhu Culture is being excavated.
