When I was still a child, these types of old factories and buildings were everywhere, alive and full of vigour. However, what I used to be so familiar with has literally disappeared in front of my eyes. Being ruthless is part of human nature, and so is being nostalgic.
This photo collage is about my personal memory of Shanghai, which is real yet also full of fantasy – and becoming fainter by the day. After being re-sorted, reordered and recombined, the well-worn buildings in this photograph – and my broken memories – have been called back to life in an integral and centralized way. This collage is about the vanishing past and the ever-changing times. Memories are easily lost here in Shanghai.
