zhú mù nòng/The Riverside



Super 8mm Film, 3 minutes,
2021


"The Riverside" walks along the Lianxi river to the Grand Canal Lianshi, capturing the riverside in single frames with one long shot and its zoomed in image, as it passes through a ghost theatre, ancestral dwellings to be demolished, a privatized state-owned factory, and a freshly built "historic town". Images are in-camera editing. A new texture is shaped while still images are transformed into moving images. This work considers the film techniques and the emotions they unfolded.
