What do you see when you look out the window?
What Do You See When You Look Out the Window《你看外面风景的时候会想到什么？》, published along with the exhibition »A Day in the Outer Ring 《环外游》«, is an interactive photo book designed for readers to alter by placing stickers on it. Designed to fit in the sanitary bag placed in front of each seat on the HSR, the photo book and sticker collection will be distributed to passengers by way of train seat pocket.
The book comprises photos of impacted rural and industrial landscapes around new and planned high-speed rail stations in Hebei, China, while the stickers are drawn from propaganda outlining official promises for the future. Asking the reader to collage over these scenes speaks to the constant manipulation of landscape in the context of Chinese urban development and poses the question of where agency is located in this change.
