10,000 Flowers is a one-hour continuous video fly-through depicting the ring roads of Beijing’s inner city highway system. The work is a mesmerizing video panorama of twenty-meter long, pulling the observer deep into an unseen urban landscape. Unlike most portraits of Beijing’s highway system filled with traffic, congestion and suffocation, this video panorama portrays the vast traffic space as filled with potential. The camera follows the path of the extensive new subway lines, revealing what experiences the underground traveler is missing. This cross-section of the city captures the beauty of the new Beijing landscape as contrast between congestions and vast emptiness, high speed and stagnation and infinite color in motion.

北京万花阵是一个绵延一小时的影像装置,记录的是北京环路之掠影。装置以一幅20米长的眩目的全景,力图将观者拉入前所未见的城市景观的奇妙世界。它抛开了北京交通干线的车流、堵塞和令人窒息,着力描绘的是宽阔的公共交通空间的潜质。镜头亦跟随了日益繁复的新地铁线之地上,力图还原那些地下通勤者错过的体验。这一城市的剖面图试图捕捉北京城市景观拥挤与空旷、高速与停滞的对比之美。(侯唯唯)
