Of a recent visit to the Old Summer Palace in Beijing...the curiosity of how culture is perceived distinctly through time and generation, from an empirical place for the king to escape the cruel summer to a popular photo spot, from idiosyncratic to touristic, from exclusive to popular, from modern to out-of-date. The symbolic meaning of ornamentation or the typology of space become pieces of montage on the digital screen. It is of different periods of time intersected between each other, erasing, copying from the different piece of the reality and inserting new elements.
