Night Running 夜奔

Zheng Fang, 2021

Night Running is a video game about softness, hardness, opaqueness, transparency, sex, violence, love, hate, confusion, and misinterpretation.

On this endless night run, we made our way from the city plaza to the theatre balcony. In these narrow spaces, we became audiences in these tiny boxes. In these semi-open rooms, we looked at the other spaces, and they looked at us from theirs. Only short and loud shouts will make sounds to be heard from one place to another, in this endless journey.
