Chemical process  制作过程:

Absolute Purity (2020)
Silver pieces recovered from the  16mm films of the movie Liu Qiao Er (1956)
Silver and combined material, 1 x 1.5 inches, 1.7g

Through recovering all the silver in the emulsion of this film, I transform the film from the 1950s, which is a time-based "illusion", to a solid space-based noble metal that lacks a certain degree of purity. The paradoxical thing is, silver belongs to a very different value system from the value system the film supports.

银,其他杂质,2.5 x 3.8 cm, 1.7g

通过一系列的化学程序,我将革命老电影《刘巧儿》 (1956)胶片中的银提取了出来,最终将感光剂上所有的银烧制成了一块银的混合物,电影这样一种时间性的幻觉被转化成了这样一小块空间性的金属。 把回收来的革命老电影提炼出(缺乏纯度的)银,我想要探讨价值体系转换的问题,即银这种贵重金属如何与电影想传达的价值观和意识形态矛盾,却又是支撑这部电影得以存在的媒介本体的东西。

Meetings of the Eyes (2020)
In this video, different characters are all looking at Qiaoer, the female protagonist, but she never appears. This makes it seem like they're just looking at each other.
