1989, 58:00 minutes, colour


A study for A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words is composed of a sampling of images from a fifteen channel multi-monitor work. The images are a collection of scenes gathered in China, from the minority regions of China and from the more populous Han Chinese areas. The contrasting of various ethnic minorities against the Han majority puts forward the question, who are the chinese people?
