The action he chooses of Push ups as his symbol and is related to his identity and nobody can copy him. It is a healthy concept which is accepted by most people even by Chinese society. This makes his being naked less of an issue with the Chinese people. I think the push up is a good choice because he is very successful choosing this action. He chose a positive action so that he will not offend the political government.
And the way he films himself, he used his own professional skills as a photographer and a news reporter, so he knew how to record different environments because of his experience as if to record the news. He mentioned he recorded 8 minutes to finish the whole process including arriving on the location and undress and film and then get dressed and run away from security men. It was a risky process for him to make this video because nudity is not accepted in China.
He performed this for 8 years really inspired me because this project had no time limit and the time it took to record all the content made it have a deeper impact because time can show the changes in the environment especially in the fast growing speed of Chinese society. The 8 year development is interesting to see and shows this news reporter can show the truth of the country in his own personal way. The way he exhibits his work through photographs makes me think more about how to set up personal artist exhibition because I think that simple photography is not enough for an exhibition. I think China needs to develop exhibitions more like this because they are usually traditional and weak. Hang combines performance with photography and this makes it more contemporary.
