Chinese Life Series >> Job 100
Job 100 is the first book of Chinese Life Series. In this book, The character are doing the most bottom jobs in the context of Chinese society. Inspired by my previous work ‘Worm Puzzle’, the character is like every small panel of puzzle in this rising country, making up the whole flourishing image but easily to be underestimated as individuals. The jobs are actually just ways they can find to make living, such as roast sweet potato vendor, on street barber, and people providing service of installing screen protection. I think what seems mundane in life often overlooked by people still has affect that weighs much more than what it seems. It’s the same as the things we aware and enjoyed everyday. Because this is the way they all existing in this world. So different perspectives inspire new ways of seeing. For example, the vocations (the character plays) in the book might not be easily noticed by natives but for people who ever been in this context would share a mixed feeling when they see them, although the characters are looked funny but are the most low income ‘jobs’ which can barely support one’s living. The dramatized scenes of mundanes might awake readers awareness of respecting and criticizing world we taking for granted.
