Shi Weigeng: In modern life, electronic industrial products such as computers, televisions and mobile phones have a closer relationship with people than nature. In order to expand the human sensory experience and make life more convenient, these machines are  constantly updating and advancing over time.

These works are based on the reflection of the industrial society, exploring the dissolution and reshaping of the spiritual life and emotional world of people by machines. Affected by Carl Jung's theories of "collective unconscious" and "prototype", I tried to establish the connection between machines and human subconscious world.

In my imagination, the deep subconsciousness of modern people is a chaotic world which is both primitive and modern, and where the concepts of time and space are confounded. The land is barren, and there are creatures wandering around, which are the fusion of humans, machines and animals, and seems to be a new species created and then abandoned by the Creator.
