PARKWAN ASK FOR RIVER
Two days before, I've went to Pakwan Moutain searched for river.
I've employed a motorcycle and, asked the driver bring me to find the head of the river. After that he've brought me here and told me it' hard to find now, too many buildings and roads and it's always underground. Why he knows here? It was a customer knew here and asked him stoped here and pissed before.
This is another village in the city.
This is the driver. I've told him I interesting at environmental protection and, he was interesting at me, asked me wheather I'm a news-reportor.
He've brought me to his village and showed me how dirty the ditches.
After that he told me his wife in sick and she must spend 500yuan on medicine every month.
And I asked him why you clean it by yourselves.
Here is the Donghao Chong. And the hospital behind where the driver's wife always go.

I've got off.
This is WuChong(Dirty River). I don't konw when the people started to call this.
It smells very bad.
And the building is the Communist Party School.

I've stopped here, on the left side is the Sience Center in future.
The water is not very good here, too.
I will search for more places tomorrow.

NEW PLAN 2
What is the Tomorrow?
I want to spend 30 days to interviewing 30 people(1 day per 1 person). The first one I will ask him/her to ask some question to the people who living in the Tomorrow or tell something as he/she want. And the second one I will so him/her the first one’s video firstly, let him/her answer the question and ask some question to the people who living in the Tomorrow or tell something as he/she want. And so on.
I will mix all the video together.
“Everyone is an idealist.”
The tomorrow never come to an end, because it never appears;And so we have space to think of our life’s value.
Chinese is too reality and complicated. The problem of environmental protection is very serious here. Great majority of travellers want to take back sth from the view - healthy(water or enjoy the air), photoes, relationship or something else. Maybe only kids are enjoying the climb.
Too many travellers come here to take water. Many Chinese's concept of healthy is very simple - only has a long life and, they don't care about the quality too much, so always to be a living dier. They're selfish too, for example of environmental protection.
I've founded some restaurants at the root made some pipes to get clean water from middle of the moutain.
Chinese is very smart but in a small way, so it's very easy to destroy or some times they want to do a good thing but not in fact(this problem is ont only Chinese, like Bush).
ABOUT MY WORK
First I put some water from a small river into a plastics bottle.
Less than 80% and it still can float on the river.
I will put hundreds of plastics bottles into the river and, they can go down by the river.

IT'S THE FIRST CONRADE COMDOM OF CHINA
EXHIBITION IN SHANGHAI
When the Shanghai Biennial I have joined an Exhibition in Doland Art Museum. At that time there were too many exhibitions in SH, like a suppermarket. But I still found a good exhibition in Zhengda(about CCAA). Top Chinese artists and curator there.
Here are some photoes about my exhibition.
About an idealist
I make a video that has nothing(only black screen and titles) at first. Then I collects the audiences' reaction and put them into my video. The new video shows to new audiences and collects the new reation inside, and so on.
I must thank you Alfred Banze here who gave me a great help.
ART GAMES WITH KIDS IN LIJIANG 2
ART GAMES WITH KIDS IN LIJIANG 1
With Lucile and Laurence Orgeas, we worked on the Jianghu Kids project in the little school (which is not used anymore) of the village of Lashihai (a Naxi farming village 20km from Lijiang), during around one month. Everyday morning we gave lesson to the kids of the village. The original idea was through the act of creation to make the kids understand how much their environment is important, and to explain them what is pollution...
