Immortal Game is a ongoing photo project. I placed different performers in various daily environment where people are familiar with. By interfering people’s social convention, recreating the behaviors people do repetitively in daily life, and designing the interaction between performers and the environment they exist in, I explore the perception and behavior of human beings and its relations with modern society.
Look Left and Look Right
It doesn't matter which direction model look at. The key point is the behavior of keeping looking, searching and accepting trivial information. Keep looking might have become a subconscious habit of us. It is not just a behavior which is limited on checking social medias, it is more like a inherent lifestyle, a thing that people keep doing in their whole life. I abstract this checking behavior into the movement of Look Left and Look Right and combine it with colorful and continuous changing background. At the same time, When models shake their heads, the pigtails will hit their faces.
It is a performance I did in, Subway line 1, it is the one of the busiest subway line in Beijing. I raised my arm in the platform and test the reaction of passengers. In this work, I thought about how the existing functional space affect changes people's perceptions and behaviors, and how do people react with variables in familiar spaces.
