The first video installation from Ma Yong Feng is a presentation of animals, fenced in and contained at what appears to be a zoo. The way Feng leads our eyes with a telescopic black circle confines the area to be viewed and presents the feeling of constriction. Metaphorical for the preservation of life in a false environment and the continuing depletion of natural resources, the number of people gazing at the animals in the pens also seem to mimic the minority of people experiencing the physical change and those who only see the progress, and will the development further.

The first piece was Ma Yongfeng's,"Immaterialism of Garden"This piece was interesting enough with just the green color that it had. Also, the photograph had a foreground, a middle ground, and a background, the way the artist occupied the space and tied everything together worked very well. With the cage in the foreground, the tree sticking out of the sand in the mid ground and the rope kind of in the background was appealing to me. It was like there was an outside “scene” inside. The way the light was falling and the color it made, granted it was probably changed and played in with Photoshop, it was just a beautiful and pleasing piece to look at and enjoy.

The second piece was by MA Yongfeng in the Beijing Zoological garden. It’s called Immaterialism of Garden. The piece is 200cm by 120cm and is from 2005. The whole piece reminded me of going to a museum and seeing something on display. The bright greens captured me and took me in. The piece was made up of dirt, branches, leaves, ropes hanging, a small cage, and a lighted projected on the image from above. The things in front of the backdrop were very real, but it contrasted with the backdrop, which was painted, but the colors fit perfectly to blend with its surroundings. There were a lot of earthy colors used like, green, brown, yellow, and black. The branches were very detailed, along with the rope, but the background was blurred out a little and kind of faded.

Ma Yongfeng (born Shanxi, 1971) is a video artist whose work Swirling has been exhibited internationally. His new video work, Beijing Zoological Garden, documents domestic animals and their man-made nests and shelters. The zoo is comprised of artificial mini-ecosystems designed to ensure the survival of animal species; each unit is drawn from an imagining of the natural environment as well as traditional Chinese bird-and-flower scroll paintings. As China’s fiercely rapid development destroys the natural environment, and animals are increasingly confined to the screen and the page, this garden becomes a nostalgic living picture.
