Mist in Half Walls
In the building group of the Nanjing Tulou Building (large-scale terracotta residential building in the mountainous area) in Fujian Province, there is a wall of the “Shide Building” earthen building that was burned by the Taiping Army in 1864. The ruined wall after burning is faintly visible in the past. I collected waste wood furniture, farm tools, etc. from local villages, launched local carpenters, and used their original and superb techniques to embed these wooden furniture on the wall, trying to restore the original life of the former Tulou residents and create a life of the past. Imagery. Trying to create such a scene, the theater with the breath of life and traces of life will be spread out in front of the audience.

The dialogue, movements and the tacit understanding of the transmission of projectiles at high altitude when the three carpenters cooperated in the construction were just like a drama performance in the air. So I recorded this dramatic creative process.
