Jie Shao 邵捷
Artist 艺术家

Jie Shao is an interdisciplinary artist working on installation and sculpture. Combining with personal memory, observation and experience, his practice aims to represent rules that lies in society, repeatedly and accidentally triggered in everyday life. By understanding the function and metaphor of different materials, his work intends to contour the knot between them.

5. A book you plan on reading? 打算读那本书?

“The Global Transformation of Time” by Vanessa Ogle. A friend recommended me this book, it’s about the formation of Greenwich Time and world time over a span of nearly a century. I am interested in systems and rules, and the rules of time have assimilated the world violently.

Vanessa Ogle, The Global Transformation Of Time. 朋友推荐的一本书,讲了在接近一个世纪的时间跨度里,格林威治时间和世界时间的制定过程,我本身对于系统和规则的很感兴趣,时间规则其实暴力地同化了世界。
