Let’s Puff!

Video iInstallation
2002, Shanghai Biennale;
2003, Venice Biennale

Two synchronized videos project face to face in a dark space.
Video A shows a girl blowing air at the camera. The rhythm of the video is controlled by the length of every puff blown.
Video B follows the Bund to Nanjing Road in Shanghai shot backwards. It was then edited to be in synch with Video A: as the girl puffs, the scene moves back quickly as if the girl is pushing the Bund farther and father gradually.
