    Yang, one of China’s premier video artists, constructs contemporary allegories of alienation and the endangered status of intellectual life in Chinese cities. “You live in a big city, hiding in your little corner, and it’s doubtful that even a few people know of your existence. Yet you are a part of the city. It’s you and a lot of other people who make up this city. The feeling of the city depends on all these people living in their own dreams. My relationship with society to a large degree is a kind of metabolic relationship… I was unable to choose which generation I was born into, yet I have to learn to adapt to the times.” (Yang Fudong; H. Wu and C. Phillips, eds., Between Past and Future, New York, 2004, p. 215)
