*The artwork was developed from the film more than 10 years ago. We did a lot of procedures including handcraft and AI enhancement to make this work comes true, from a low-resolution photo, and make it paint-liked texture. It’s fun to try and error many times in this experimental process. It may not be perfect, but the imperfection made it Art.
*Production need 1-2 weeks depends on the stocks availability
Story of the Artwork:
2009, I came across my first crossroad. I was tired of my routine job and decided to quit. I packed my backpack, bought a ticket for the train, went on the road. This artwork took in Autumn, 2009, traveling as a backpacker from Sichuan to Yunnan（Shangri-La）inside Daocheng Yading, actually, my destination is Tibet on that trip. When you are in the middle of a crossroad, what you only can do is going on a long trip, explore the world, outside and inside your heart, and get to know yourself. Your inner voice would guide your road.
I remember I was so peaceful and without fear at that moment even I was all alone. And I took this picture on the way to Tibet. That was a bad day, the weather was very bad actually and the sky was foggy. But when I look up to the sky, the birds on the electric wires just like me, and a lot of people, living like walk on the wire, even don't know what to do in the situation of crossroads.
