LI TINGWEI, Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (2019)

“Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups" is depicting a relationship between weather conditions and human society. If smog is an unnatural barrier created by humans, which takes part in their isolation and keeps them lock away at homes, then it is a rebellion to break that artifical border keeping us apart. Buildings, were for the sensitive-abnormal groups are just a passive gesture of entrapment and do not offer any solution. There is hope in primitivity- wooden ladders and firewood have the power to withstand capitalism and provide comfort over fire. Fire is an unsolvable puzzle.
