This video is named "I love oleander", because from the artist’s perspective, the sides of the road and park are open tracts of oleander almost over the whole year in Shanghai. The humble but large flowers crowd together and are particularly conspicuous. Oleander’s sap is toxic, when breaking it, a white liquid can effuse. It seems like a large crowd of people is scattered in the city, repeating their daily life in the following way: working, eating, drinking, smoking, staying at nights, men and women become numb and toxic is caused by cigarettes and computers. Through capturing a normal party at weekend by video, trivial life can be reflected. As if all attributable can owe to the ordinary, blood like the oleander sap, colorless and tasteless but slightly sad. It’s difficult to describe this feeling, but perhaps everyone living in this city feels the same.
