The Edge of Vison, or the Edge of the Earth presents the artist’s systematic study of the credibility of narratives.

A series of manipulated natural landscaped images are delicately insinuated into the footages the artist has

previously taken in the United States, Denmark, and China. These include documentations of performances

related to Chinese funeral rituals, and other landscapes that are shot in a National Geographic style; the

footages are shown along with a voiceover that resembles a BBC documentary narration. Purposely

misleading in both visual and audio languages, the work aims at achieving a degree of narration that is clear

but deceitful. A thorough exploration of the mechanism for documentary visual languages  developes a

discourse on the relationship between the work, the author and the audience as seen in her earlier work Hi~!.
