Dragonfly Eyes / Qing Ting Zhi Yan Programme 2019

by Xu Bing Hashtag #BigData

These days we are constantly filmed by surveillance cameras. This rings particularly true in China, where our protagonist Qing Ting ends her training to become a Buddhist nun so she can work on a farm and get closer to labourer Ke Fan. Later she completely reinvents herself as an online celebrity. Director and Concept Artist Xu Bing's crazy love stories are exclusively told using real security camera footage taken from all over China. Reflecting the ubiquity of surveillance cameras and the loss of privacy, Bing engineered his innovative experimental melodrama DRAGONFLY EYES using more than 10,000 hours of CCTV footage and a continuous, fictionalised voice-over.
