I am a 25-year old Chinese girl, fanatic about beautiful things, full of weird dreams.
A few years ago I found myself in love with photography as it is a pretty nice way for me to record those impressive colours, profiles, and shapes in life. Yet for me photography meets its boundaries when it comes to all the life experiences that I fascinate very much. These experiences are unique, complicated, and hard to describe through words. Texts and pictures don't help much in expressing all our senses and feelings. How am I supposed to tell you how I feel when I am standing in a sea of flowers, or watching a grandeur group of architectures, or sitting in the roller coaster, listening to others' scream?
I feel the same for all the fantasies and daydreams that I have. How am I supposed to actually "experience" them? How am I supposed to imagine the feelings I would have when I am placed in outer space in the universe, or wandering on the streets of an old city that is thousands miles away, or looking at a prehistoric animal that is standing right in front of me?
The confusion about "experiences" seems to disappear when I discover the magic power of the virtual world. In such a world, the seemingly illusory "experiences" could be created, duplicated, and shared, just like digital pictures. You can experience what I have experienced, and I can experience what I haven't.
