February 2018 -
I traveled to Shenzhen, Guangdong, part of the Continuum programme organised by Sonic Acts Academy and ArtEZ Institute of the Arts, to create a project of my choice. I was dropped in an unknown city with just very little guidance.
I created a film and a book. The book describes my journey of how I created a film in Shenzhen. Struggling with: approaching people, not speaking the language, mediations of language via a translating app, social situations, misunderstandings, having no word for ‘no’, censorship, borders, ideals of beauty and being a 21-year-old Western girl in China.
