Through an EEG headset, the viewer illuminates the room with light of different colors. Accordingly, the figures in the color-coded paintings seem to emerge from the dark silhouettes in the pale blue moonlight and then disappear into the dilapidated house and landfill.

The paintings concern the contemporary throwaway culture and the power dynamics embedded in trash problems. Garbage is a mirror on our society, indicating the patterns of our consumption patterns and generational differences. What some people discard, others need to survive. Once the world’s largest importer of “foreign trash,” China has boosted its manufacturing sector at the cost of environmental problems, revealing social inequalities between classes and countries. This work envisions the earth turning into a wasteland, calling attention to the tradeoff of modernity.
