home: lesson one

“Home: Lesson One” reveals how the idea of home is being reshaped by the current wave of development in China. The work is a sound clip of a computer synthesized voice pronouncing a text extracted from the Beijing property adverts I collected while I lived there. Listening to these thousands of words, one learns a new concept of the so-called "ideal home" in Beijing – its price, resale value, location, and proximity to schools and transport. How are these new ideas of "home" shaping the future of China? Perhaps this is a compulsory lesson for every generation in the new society in China.
