concept:
A and B stand face to face, A pushes B to produce another B, every push by A will produce a new B and this goes on until all the Bs push A off the screen. The video "Push" attempts to capture what is currently occurring in China, where creativity is taking a back seat to mere copying. Although numerous individuals are producing works under the banner of creativity, in reality most of the "creative" works are mere copies of what has already been produced. This take on a life of its own where the copy of a copy overwhelms the senses. Through technology man has become inundated with multiple copies but such blind acceptance may lead us into an era of sheer compliance.
