Urban memory is a durational conceptual performance. It is a subjective interpretations of the city, by the eye of the individual visitor (artist), who get primary informations and feelings about the city from the direct contacts with citizens, from visiting places of interest, from random walking in the city. During the performance I will take photos of city details, collecting items from the city and from the peoples on the street. And also mark places where I will take memories. At the end I will present collected items and maked photos as my Urban memorys about Guangzhou. Connecting virtual items (photos) and real items, and marking places from where it was collected creating the concept of Urban memories.
