Standing in the wind to catch the light
Lingfei Guan (b.1998, China) graduated from the Royal College of Art.
She explores the intermediality between contemporary digital media and the personal consciousness of the masses, and analyses the symbolic intentionality in contemporary media image making. Lingfei focuses on the paradoxical moments of collision between personal feelings and social ideologies, from which she reflects on the relationship between personal, cultural and capitalist forces in the media. Multiple layers of media are commonly used to expand the boundaries of communication, exposing the viewer to the limits of the medium of expression and a tipping point where the self can be lost in a capitalist culture.
