The Remnant of Images is a personal reflection on fragments of our visual memories. The visual materials are collected from internet, public catalogues, and private photo albums. They are convincing documentary of Chinese history in recent decades. These historical fragments that share a collective memory are re-contextualised with additional information in a different narrative. The images presented in screens are typical historical events known by general public. They are activated in the old file cabinets to produce a new story and lead us through the dimensions for individual interpretations.
