The artist created this video installation through his experience of using aluminium ladder at work as a photojournalist. In the video, Cheng attempts to observe the confrontation between himself and the landscape, juxtaposing that with his bodily experience at the moment of video shooting. On the surface where breeze blows across, he explores how the subject and object, produced by gazes, dissolve.
‘If I could become the landscape, I would be gazing at myself as I gaze at the landscape.’
