Landscape project in MFA1 of CalArts.
In 1970s, my dad was forced to stop his study in high school then banished to a salt lake to be a worker for 7 years because of the the Cultural Revolution. At that time, he was 15 years old. Even he finally went back to city and continued his studying, it was indelible memory and impossible for him to chasing these kind of lost times which totally changed his life.
I never been to that salt lake, but I was always tried to see, to understand his youth as his daughter with a view of a stranger to the lake.
