Surface Value explores the vision and reality of urban color management in the city of Changsha.The performative voice-over speculates on existing policies of color management, while reflecting the artist's own attempts on ‘capturing colors’ in the city: How does the citizen interact with the colors of urbanisms, and where lies the logic of such urban color control? The film questioned if the so-called management of urban color is possibly only a wishful thinking from the ones in power.
