“Swirling” a video by Ma Yongfeng a fifteen minute long digital video loop was displayed on a television screen in INOVA’s entranceway. Six Koi are dumped into an upright washing machine and whipped around through several wash cycles. The fish whirl through the water creating a spinning image of orange forms. This piece was hypnotizing in a way but also caused the viewer to wonder what the artist’s intentions were. A metaphor was being made by the artist with Koi, a symbol of wealth, being put in a washing machine, a symbol of the ever changing present. Yongfeng created an interesting and thought provoking relationship between the concept of Chinese wealth and the economic growth it has endured.
