New project- Best Match 4u(working title)

After the suffer from all the breaking ups, now I'm ready to look at some bright side of life!

In China, it's been a tradition that parents has an influence at youngster's marriage.
Plus marriage is "the most important thing in life". However, the new generation is looking at marriage from a different angle. Young men and women are simply too busy to look for their "the other half". Singles at their late 20s, or 30s, is called "the leftovers". The recent 5 years, apperantly "the leftovers" increases a lot. This definitely put their parents on steak!

So I heard, every Sunday afternoon, in Zhongshan Park in Beijing, there will be this special gathering of parents who want to "help" the youngster a bit.

I'm Sorry

Searching for Sorry Faces:

I, have this particular feeling when a man says sorry to me, with that expression on his face: “So sorry, but there is nothing I can do about it.”

I remember when I was about 16, I fell in love with a boy because I saw this expression on his face. Years after, I’ve heard so many times the same words: I’m sorry. I’m sorry, seen the same expression on different faces. Sorry, but there is nothing I can help. Again, the other day, I was told: when a man says sorry, he really means it. A man cannot fake feeling guilty. Oh? Really? Just like when a man says “I love you”?

Deep inside, I have never got over any of those men who hurt me, whether I’ve got apologize or not, apologize in person or just a line in email, text message. I still can’t believe, they’ve left me, stopped loving me. I can’t stand the idea of thinking how I’m just a stranger for them, I mean, who used to be the most closed person in the world.

I decide to search for Sorry Faces, to make up my dissatisfaction of those imperfect endings of love. I approach men I don’t know to pose for my camera, acting out a guilty, sorry expression.

Gaze

This is to follow the Santa Claus project I started last year.

Have you ever been gazing at the Magic fireplace
where Santa is supposed to appear every year,
and wonder, how is that possible?

Titled

Believe with a lie inside.
Truth or false, exists relatively.
Most of the time, it doesn't depend on fact, but depends on faith.

Project: A Xmas Forest

Xmas trees linger around town. The real celebration starts after Xmas.

'A Xmas Forest' is a project I started after 2009 Christmas.
As part of 'beLIEve' project.

I came from a culture which doesn't have Christmas tradition.
With great curiousity I look at Christmas in Europe every year,
being unable to really join in myself. Somehow, I felt strong sympathy
towards these abunden xmas trees on street. I feel sad, but still would
like to tell myself another kind of story: they run out from home,
linger around, playing 'Hide and Seek'...
