This group of compositions was photographed from 2008 to 2010. Then, Bi was in Dalian, which located in Northeastern China, 2000 kilometers away from thier hometown. Commuting between Hunan and Dalian, they finished this group of works. Mengxi, which means dreaming of streams, is the name of their hometown. In their view, in the photographs, there is the belief that a farmer’s descendent holds for earth, the nostalgia for the hometown because of their depression and failure in the cities and the desperate emotions when facing sadness and sorrow. The interposition of calligraphy is a natural course just like the growth of a seed. They intended to narrate their childhood, Bi intended to rede how they ran on this land, from this bay to that hillock.
