" Right now, I’m researching in Beijing. I’m particularly interested in the resilience of cities, and how they grow into smarter, cleaner and enjoyable places to live. To kick this project off, I circumnavigated the entire megacity, walking with the mountains behind me and the urban sprawl ahead "

"目前我还在探索北京。我对这座城市的回复力,以及它发展成为更小,更清洁,更适宜居住的地区的过程尤其感兴趣。作为这个项目的开始,我走遍了整座大都市,群山在我身后环绕,城市在我眼前延展。"

This walking exploration, titled #WalkInProgress, is an ongoing research project.  To understand the gigantic scale of this megacity and its forever changing geography, the project was hatched from a feeling of necessity.

这项行走中的探索名叫#WalkinProgress,它是我目前正在进行的研究项目。为了了解这座大都市巨大的规模以及瞬息万变的地理环境,我脑海中产生了强大的去完成这个项目的需求。

The first objective was to circumnavigate Beijing using the 6th ring road as a marker to explore the outer reaches of the city. The walk was approximately 250km and was completed in seven days by following paths and roads that ran close to the express way. Walking deep into the night offered a glimpse into a place that certainly never sleeps.

我的第一个目标就是环绕北京,借助六环作为标志来探索城市的外围。这次行走的总路程约有250千米,我沿着高速附近的公路,小径,总共用了七天来完成它。在幽深的夜晚行走,让我看到了这座城市确实不曾入眠。

Along the way particular attention was paid to the local communities, development, transport, industry, environment and cultural curiosities (of which there were many!) A digital community was created on WeChat, a Chinese social media platform, so people could engage with the project and get involved with the journey.

在我的行走过程中,我对当地的社区,发展,交通,工业,环境和人文景点(真的有很多!)尤其关注。在微信,一个中国的社交媒体上,一个数字化社区俨然形成。这样,大家都可以通过它来参与这个项目和整个行走过程。

A series of new works will be represented by The Palm Tree Gallery and exhibitions will take place in China and London during 2018.
在2018年一系列新的作品将于Palm Tree美术馆展出,届时中国和伦敦也将举行展览。
