Baoshan District

Jim Speers, 2017
Digital film (8:00 minutes)
Loop with sound

Baoshan District takes the viewer on a night time journey at the industrial edge of Shanghai. We travel along the edge of a creek, following the path used to travel across the informal ground between apartment blocks, factories and the local shopping mall. The sound track records the immediate environment—a rustle of leaves and the communication of insects against the distant rumble of the city’s traffic. The film captures an unlikely wilderness, and the adaptive behaviour of both plants and people as well as the effect of larger forces beyond this small, particular piece of land, which bring changes to the material culture and physical form of the city.
