Shi Qing's work is hard to categorize and always evolves in both media and methodological tools of perception. From behavioral analysis of psychology to study of geopolitical conflict in the globalized world, from socialist cultural heritage to actual geographical environment in the nomadic space, a wide range of topics have come under his attention. His recent projects are more focused on everyday life politics and artistic production relations.
