Red illuminates was created as reflection on the culture in socialist countries. The project started with a walk near where I grew up. In a residential area in Beijing, there was a Special Criminal Syndicate Combat propaganda poster on average every 40 meters. My interests lie within restoring the red politics in culture and ways of cultivating loyalty in socialist countries through an installation form. The moving image documents that I played audio to the orchid. The orchid stayed in a dark place where it was listening to socialist propaganda under artificial grow lights continuously for 30 days. (Installation sound element: Red songs; CCTV News Broadcasting.)
