X – Blind Spot, 2008

X-Blind Spot is a four-year coalmining survey examining the underground world of exploitation, labor conditions and the physical repercussions suffered by the coalmining community in China today. In particular, the four-channel video installation ‘X-Blind Spot’ captures the artist’s intervention, concern and documentation of the multiple streams of awareness within these complex social realities of temporal communities that carry on China’s industrial legacy today.
