In a room, there are four people. Shao explores and reflects contradictions in herself within the dream realm. Despite their abandonment in isolation and surreality her characters remain eternally unmoved by their peculiar situations. Shao blends digital and analogue materials to evoke otherworldly and unique perspectives. She will always praise bathtubs, the spine and ever insoluble questions.
