In most Chinese cities, a lot of buildings have been demolished as new ones are built. It is possible to be lost in a familiar street; it doesn't matter that you have only left the area for several weeks. So many things in your mind disappear so soon. The image of the city in our memory becomes lighter and lighter. It is so exciting and depressing that we live in the city under the fast speed of development. (Artist's Statement)
