Located 400 kilometers from Africa and 1500 kilometers from Europe, Madeira is a small island in the Atlantic Ocean, an autonomous region of Portugal.  It takes up to three or four transfers by airplane from China.  This is the result of a field research on local Chinese communities on this island.  Each person chose a particular position towards the camera representing his/her choice of “staying” or “leaving” as well as ”past”,  “present” or “future”. Hydroponics metaphorically describes this state of having one’s roots in water and living without soil while reflecting on social migration in the contemporary society.  The artist chooses to find a balance between her personal experience and objective perspective of the issue in question.

马德拉距离非洲400公里,欧洲1500公里,是葡萄牙属自治洲,非洲地壳板块上大西洋中的一个孤岛。从中国需要转机3-4次方可到达。这是对当地居住的少量中国人的一次生态调查。每个人选择了面朝相机的方向代表他们对于“去”和“留”,“过去”,“现在”和“未来”的选择。《水培人》是对于这些生长在水中却没有泥土的生活方式的一种描绘,也是对当代社会中人口的迁徙和移民人群的状态的思考。作者试图在个人经验和客观性之间寻找一种平衡。
