'A Chinese Whispers' is a mixed media art project involving an unframed digital colour inkjet print of my self-portrait photography. I put on a natural facial expression in a blank backdrop to simulate the guideline style of ID photos, with a QR code label covering my lips. After the onlookers scan the code, a close-up video of my mouth whispering the manifesto 'Not Your Chinese Artist' in Chinese will play on the phone screens, which they can place on top of the QR code to complete the portrait image.
