Title: Salt Pond
My hometown Ningbo had been a major salt farming city for hundreds of years but all the salt ponds have been gradually abandoned for urban development except the only one on a remote island.
The Salt Pond series depicted different statuses of salt farming from filtered seawater to raw salt. The process including filtration, concentration, purification, harvesting salt, etc. is quite similar to the integration or detachment of individuals in the collective to me. From observing the dynamic form of salt, I start to find its poetic motion and power harmonize with my vital identity by presenting me with further possibilities of existence.
