Shijing Shen

MA work

Cityscape on cloud

The mixed light from city reflected by cloud like the wall shows the colour of the bulb. It gives me a way to see the colour of whole city in the night.

  • Influenced by the experimental Chinese ink painting, which is a rethink after the study of western aesthetics, man-made nature is the main inspiration for Shijing’s works. He values aesthetic beauty and texture the most in his works. Through his cameras he tries to find the connection between his body and the universe, and from political satires he gains inspirations for his art videos.
