1993, Shanghai, China
Plate 41, 18x27
Here outside of Shanghai is the face of the new world - bright, young and attentive, anxious for the opportunity to move. The children were animated to the point they seemed iridescent. Each had a clean little uniform. Everything seemed to function. Everything seemed to move and all in an environment of harmony. It seemed that no child bumped into another child. It seemed that conflict was minimal, and it seemed that the animated smiles were everywhere. Should this be as it appears and should it be all over China, I think one might then say that the future heavily favors China for leadership. How they swept so swiftly to such an advanced society I don't know. Neither do I understand what the motivation was.
