 Xi (Glory) Jing
In my work I have been working with my memories of the Wenchuan (China) earthquake in 2008, I have been creating miniature landscapes that depict the rubble and destruction. To bring a sense of hope into my work I was inspired by subterranean spaces and the glowworm species Arachnocampa Luminosa, this species is found inside the Te Anau Caves (New Zealand). The geological structure of the caves are subterranean and those glowworms flicking in the dark light are like the souls of those people who lost their life in that earthquake.
