Jing Peng


Now this experience of watching the suffering in the distance has been integrated into our daily life. These images are so deeply integrated into daily life that we are almost used to them. The time and space distance between us and these "disasters in the distance" seems to have been erased, but in fact, we can easily turn off the screen and switch to mobile games. So at this moment, we see the images of these distant disasters, what is left behind and what it means.
