Stills from <Urban Emotions>

"Am I sick, or is our city sick?" With this question in mind, I made this short film showing several street performances I have made since coming to Germany from China in 2018, each performance interrupted for 10 seconds, 10 seconds being the length of the emotion as I understand it. Here I understand the city as an extension of the body, and I understand my movements in these performances as a touch on the skin of the city, placing the instability of the emotions of the body as a test of the city in public space.
