Dream China

Dong Jun

Run time: 3 mins*12

Film type: 12-channel video work

Synopsis

The imageless images of six snowflake dots and six sleeping Chinese figures in Dream China echo the twelve easily overlooked time sources in the upper left corner of the screen, creating a national code that is moving at breakneck speed. I hope that I am a ferryman with the viewer to the living site of what is happening. The absence of history is a sign of our presence. This regret is not without sadness, for we are each time making an effigy of time.
