Hu Xiaoyuan: No Reason (single channel video 2010) Media Landscape, Zone East at CUC

The object rolling around in this video creates a sense of tension and uncertainty. There is a contrast between the sense of nature evoked by the cocoon-like object and the delicacy and softness of the whites, while the object also evokes images of a hostage struggling to get free from a body bag like prison and the crack in the surface of the floor gives a subtle sense of decay and something unsettling.
