Xing created her Scroll series in the summers of 1999 and 2000 while she was in Beijing in-between semesters at New York’s School of Visual Art. Scroll A1 presents people at their leisure along a traditional covered walkway. Using one roll of film for this composition, Xing consciously references both the cinematic filmstrip and the traditional handscroll format, creating a journey through shifting perspectives and changes in scale.
