In this work, I started to think about our relationship with society from another optic angle. This is an installation work based on a fictive dystopia world. In this work the life of everyone is actually a set program. On the label, we can see the life track of each individual. Novel <Braved new world> has similar descriptions about the birth of human and the process of the whole society.
"Bokanovsky's process is one of thhe major instruments of social stability...... but the nature of things is such that nobody in this world ever gets anything for nothing."

With the atmosphere of doing an experiment, this installation is also an interactive work. Audiences seem to have designed others’ lives when they are filling in the form. Which makes people think more about the meaning of each word on the tags and get the awareness of we are also being controlled in society. So who is the controller? They are those who are watching us behind social media or those who are monitoring us behind CCTV?
The social atmosphere has become more diversified under the development of science and technology, while at the same time people's general psychology has similar problems. Actually the word we say “dystopia” is an extreme description of our imagination and psychological anxiety.
Exhibited in 'Postopia' exhibition, Ugly Duck, 22-25 Feb 2019
