Hardcover with dust jacket, introduction by Shu Yang, design by Liu Song.

The last image shown has been inverted on the computer and is NOT printed that way - just to give an impression...

To interact with the works in Negatives with your iPhone or iPad, go to “Settings” “General” “Accessibility” and turn on “Invert Colors”. Then use the camera to reveal the positive images of the negative works. Other devices have similar functions, such as camera setting “Color Effect - Negative”.

“It is a wonderful way of capturing that underside of insecurity that attends the Tiananmen issue and that, in a larger sense, haunts much of official China today,” he said. “The artist seems to be saying: ‘Here’s the reality that no one looks at squarely but that everyone knows is there.’ ” (from an interview/article with Xu Yong in the NY Times)
