Wind Words
Video 17:29
2011

For this piece, I invited a number of people in Shanghai to choose a word or phrase from a list of words that contain the Chinese character . (feng means wind, but also means local customs) Each person stood beside a large fan that blew a very strong wind and was given an object that was difficult to handle in a windy situation each person spoke about the word he chose while dealing with this object.
 
This is part of an on-going project, Another Story of the Wind, an homage to the Dutch filmmaker, Joris Ivens.
 
His foolish plan is to film the invisible wind.
