Young Girl, Young Boy, Find Me...

Amy Yao

Amy Yao’s multimedia work will feature film, photography and an archive of collected image and field recordings made while traveling between Shanghai and Tibet on the Qinghai-Tibet Railway. Young Girl, Young Boy, Find Me… will focus on the themes of youth culture, Chinglish, modernization and mass migration. Audio recordings may include local television, radio and sounds from public spaces. The collected media will become the material from which Yao will construct an abstract, non-narrative work. She intends to utilize newly shot footage while borrowing from the ideas and forms of past structural films, privileging real-time aesthetic, fixed camera position, flicker and looping.
