The camera captures a map of China fluttering in the wind, where the swaying cities (marked by spots on the map) become the basis for a musical composition. The piano music truly portrays the moving dots as well as the poetry of the reality we are facing. Together with From Architectural Immanence (2002) and Outline Only (2001), the three works can be considered as a series. With the vocalized works resting upon image data, the music based on maps and political metaphors as well as sound contrasts originating from buildings and their internal parts, HU Jieming uses once again the media of sound. Through the playing of music, he converts the experience of visual arts, while the red and yellow dots appearing on the map seem to provide yet another relationship perspective or a key narrative.
