Historical Context:
Leilei and Beibei are exploring the relationship between culture and the natural environment. This series of watercolors tells the stories of life and death, science and art, religion and politics, that are all one in the same. Leilei and Beibei are trying many directions to express their themes, both macro and micro, to represent pollution in landscape as a global issue. Cancer caused by pollution, is not only inside our cells, but also now a part of the earth. On a macro scale, air pollution can be considered to be cancer in the landscape, and on a micros cape, this disease is in the cells of our bodies.
