found objects, tianmian village
My photographic dialogue with the city, “Found Objects” unpacks the cultural meaning of urbanization in Shenzhen. In this series, I juxtapose objects, which I have found at construction sites and garbage dumps, with Shenzhen’s hyper-modern cityscape. Made in China, these cheap, ordinary and battered objects remind us that, grandiose dreams notwithstanding, we inhabit any city through small, intimate acts.
