Staring at the Ordos
The series photography works of Staring at the Ordos, which paid close attention to the real essence of desires hidden beyond the landscapes, were created in 2014. These works demonstrated the observations of this age, which all belonged to mercantilism, in an indifferent way. The things hidden beyond urbanization represented desires and attitudes. The urbanization in Ordos reflected the characteristics of our era’s modernization and urbanization were Great-Leap-Forward and Utopianism. The real essence of these were Country’s, Capital’s and Citizen’s immoderate modernity desires.
