Jiang Zhi, Fly, Fly, Video, Black&White, Sound, 5’15”, 1997

Man is living humbly like a slave submitted to himself and his surroundings. But this humble life, living in solitude, silence, fantasy, weariness, and passion are sometimes so overwhelming that at times we really just want to fly.
-It’s one way to transcend or escape
Can we really escape this gravity and lift up?
Which direction will we choose to fly?

Chain Reaction is a kind of independent thinking itself. Since everyone has his or her own experience and values, I call the world of Chain Reaction “a view of schizophrenia”. Most of the images of the video surpass, as well as imitate daily life experience absurdly. The film is to analyze and oppose evil by the way of using the power of evil inside human nature. Chain Reaction is an allegory of evil but without the function of salvation like the other allegories.
