Xiaojian Guo

Existing Nothingness World

During the process of film being developed, Xiaojian finds that there is a kind of boundary which can be found on 35mm film. It is the border between the end of the film and the part which is inside the tin. It makes Xiaojian associate with a Chinese traditional Philosophical theory which is the Yin and Yang. There is one part you can see under the light, but the other part that you cannot see because it will expose under the light and in the darkness, you cannot see anything. It feels like that part never existed because you cannot see it. And after the developing process, that kind of mystery is uncovered and it shows us what it looks like. When Xiaojian tries to enlarge this boundary, he finds a new world, a new universe. This new world exists in some kind of void, like that which the Bible describes was the initial state of our world. This discovered world remains in a kind of chaos shrouded in mist; it only exists in the flat plane of the film.
