I started serving in the air force in 1994. Since then I have collected all sort of official documents, in order to reveal the procedures of thought-control by the governmental machine. After my discharge I immediately travelled to the Mainland to photograph Recover Mainland China – Action. Against the backgrounds of famous historical attractions, I hopped in the upright posture to create the illusion of levitating. This ‘superficial’ visit to the Mainland comments on the absurdity of history and a sense of disconnection, and also deconstructs the torment suffered in the previous era. Even if the younger generation had no choice other than having been born into the mystifying course of history, something has to be said with regards to how we arrived in these circumstances! In my own words from before, ‘Human history is hopelessly absurd in its destiny!’ It has been, is, and will always be a condition we cannot escape.
