Diagram of Modern China 醒逝明言 (2015 Revised)

Installation view at the Agora Gallery, New York, NY, 2015

 

Revised and re-edited footage from December 2015, produced, performed, written and directed by me in December 2007. Diagram of Modern China aims to symbolize the history of Chinese politics in the past 100 years. Each character and every element in the film is a symbol with its own meaning, mirroring history and reflecting the past, present, and future. However, the meaning is never fixed, and the history is never the truth, but an interpretation.

Ending Poem:

《晓春》

晓春凄凉枯草在,

昨时寒意今时来。

早知冬去春又返,

何必花落花又开。
