About me
  1. Tianyi is always in either a second-hand shop or on second-hand sale apps where she encounters found objects, images and footage (and she never feels bored). Her love for used/ collected/ found objects originates from, instead of nostalgia, a haunted feeling experienced in the contemporary days as the past has not been shed away while our world keeps moving, or in fact it can never be...

Chung Ying Street is located within the border town of Sha Tau Kok (Hong Kong) and Shatoujiao (Shenzhen). In Cantonese, Chung means China and Ying means England. One side of the street belongs to Hong Kong and the other belongs to Mainland China. Sha Tau Kok in Shenzhen is a special zone because the town is guarded by local police. The local residents of Sha Tau Kok are granted a free pass to come and go as they wish while visitors are required to obtain a permit for travelling.

On the morning of December 12th, I got into Chung Ying Street, the one located in Shatoujiao (Shenzhen) as a mainland resident cardholder. I flew a kite and hoped it could cross the borderline to Hong Kong but in vain. Then I came back to Sha Tau Kok Estate, the one in Hong Kong and flew a kite in a parking lot. I hoped the kite could go back to Shenzhen but it also failed. The kite drew many lines that day and the one who flew the kite could only draw an unfinished circle on the map.

Land has border but wind has none. Maybe there was no wind, or I’d better not to use a kite to sneak into another place.
