The Hometown and Snow

"The relationship between your hometown and you is just like the games you played in childhood.
As a child, you played games with friends here in your hometown. But when you grew older and travelled around the world, games gradually became trades. "

The "outside world" is an attractive Pandora's Box, which is most people looking forward to. When people change their living places, they are absent from where they left. However, every piece of land is always changing at the same time. When people return to the place where they were absent, they have to face all changes more or less from the perspective of "outsiders."
As I left my hometown since I was young, more and more information and lifestyles poured into my life. I have become a multicultural fusion. Which means that the connection between me and the place that can be called "home" is decreasing. I collected videos from different places and composed them following the storyline.
It is a continued work of one of my previous photography work. I believe the theme can be rethought again and again as I am continuing my journey.
