Shanghai World Expo 2010 (2)
In the Lens of An Expert on Chinese Camera History

22 May 2010
 

别有洞天

An opening on a thick wall reveals a new world at the other side of the barrier. But if you think that world must be better than the one you are in, please take a close look. Do you see a giant blue face with huge protruding eyes emerging on the wall opposite which looks so cold and so gloomy?

上无片瓦,下午寸土,蜗居美人鱼!

While Australia's mer-not-maid flew to Denmark to live with her prince in palace, Denmark's mermaid flew to Shanghai only to perch on a stone alone. Some people are forever luckier than others.

漏花墙

A lattice wall in a massive scale to keep you safe while opening up new horizons.

转基因宝宝?

This little fat devil posing half naked in the public space seems to be a timely reminder to the visitors that how rapidly the Chinese babies from Han people, who account for over 90 percent of the Chinese population, are disappearing, and how soon China may need to create genetically modified babies (they grow fast but never up, like this one, so China will never be short of babies) or manufacture systemic babies from scratch in laboratories (with patent fees charged by the American biologists in Maryland).

Since these babies will not be able to function as crop seeds, oops, parents, thus before long all Chinese will be free of their tomb sweeping duties. If you have doubts over the outcome of this scenario, we would advise you to forward your questions to Chinese GM crop experts at Huazhong Agricultural University who were lately found to be out on the Wuhan streets feeding passers by with their nicely steamed GM rice, for free. These extremely charitable souls shall be very happy to address any of your queries.

谷内乾坤

A multi-layered space in the Sunny Valley

脚踏实地, 鸟瞰人间。

Watching human domain below, not from heaven, but through a glass floor.

球内有球, 天外有天.

When standing around watching this globe, spare one minute to contemplate that we are also standing on a globe watched by others standing around.
