Publisher's Description

'These works were sourced from my photos taken in these years. They were piled up like chicken ribs, so I operated on them, like a surgeon. I applied various methods according to different pictures: engraving, rubbing, curling, or making a photography installation with other objects. I tried all I can to save these pictures by giving them new meanings. Each picture was printed by hand. I looked them over and over to explore their inner dramatic structures, or even another space. When the image is regarded as a pure object, the print becomes a tangible place.' -Dong-Dong Cai.

 Included within the publication is both artist statement and essay by Hai Jie titled ‘Image Topology’.
