Beyond Geography 

2012, Color & Sound SD Video Installation, 23’09”, Variable Size

In “Beyond Geography”, I imitated the BBC Discovery travel series, playing the role of host as I led the camera to discover and excavate the “exotic lands”. This “exotic lands”, however, are not real settings but are staged up in a 3D digital film studio with a blue screen. Similar to the familiar methods of Discovery program, I appropriated post-production technology to create intense broadcasting atmosphere, simulated the sound effect of a real jungle, and fabricated a primitive tribe in this fake exotic land. I plotted the encounter between the host and the aboriginals, and simulated a colonist type of cultural visit. Thus, I have built up a recognizable scenario that has repeatedly emerged in our surrounding art system.
