The world today is undergoing drastic changes. Modernism led by Le Corbusier dramatically changed how cities were designed. However, this is not entirely positive. In the process of urbanization, more and more people have come to urban life. Tremendous pressure and strain were placed on a system with limited resources. It is admitted that a high standard of material comfort is achieved in the modernist city, but devoid of the quality of the city: the spirit of cities is lost. My creation aims to use different media to interpret our contemporary urban environment from different perspectives. The intention behind it is to express my critical thinking about modernist cities through art. Through my visualizations and exhibitions, the audience was able to rethink the connection between contemporary people and cities.

My experience of traveling in the city provided inspiration for this exhibition. My exhibition includes the diversity of the city, over construction and the loss of urban spirit, different aspects of the same city, the subversion of realism, the history of a city, and the impact of the time dimension on the urban landscape. I have sought inspirations from many architects and artists, especially Guy Debord, who is the founder of Situationist International. He believes that urban space is not just a collection of buildings, but an atmosphere, a situation. Architecture directly affects the existence of people who live in that space, and this impact is far beyond ordinary imagination. Therefore, people's impressions and feelings about the city as subjective individuals became the core of the exhibition and connected all my works. What I want is to create an atmosphere that reflects the nature of contemporary cities through my artworks.

The exhibition is set on the roof-deck of the building. The scale of my works is generally small, which allows a more intimate observation. They are arranged dispersed in an open and transparent space, which forms a visual contrast with the exquisite and condensed works, and thus highlights the characteristics of each work. More importantly, when the audience moves between different works, they can directly see the skyscrapers in the Beijing CBD area. This will further stimulate their reflection on urbanization and deepen their understanding of my work. In terms of space arrangement, I’ve placed the sculpture "Staples" in the center of the site, because it needs to be viewed from different perspectives, while other works are placed around it.
