Abstract

Urban villages are one of the very significant phenomenon in Chinese urbanization process, especially in the pearl river delta. Because of complex land ownership, high development cost and interest disputes from different parties, they remain a high degree of autonomy, outside central urban planning. At the turn of 2018, we went to two urban-villages in Guangzhou and befriended with several young people working and living under precarious conditions. Through daily dialogue and exchange, we found that digital life deeply influenced and shaped their urban experience and self-identification, which also both filtered and penetrated the actual urban-village physicality, becoming the geological elements. Through dialogue and collaboration, we created this film together to archive the materiality and fleeting impulses of the vanishing city space.
