Jin's artistic practice begins with her observation of the urban space she lives in from a psychological aspect, then extends to questioning the authentic appearance of the ‘world’. She often presents the silent conflicts in today’s society in a slightly humorous way to express her queries on the universal absurdities, from her own parallel standpoint as both spectator and participant.
Jin's work usually are presented in a combination of various media, including photography, video, installation and text. She often tend to construct immersion spaces in her work and create mysterious illusion and depth, by constructing multi-level experiences, to mark her surrounding space and to define the ‘world’ that She understand.
Most of the visual source materials in her works are common landscapes or objects in our living space. New context and logic are given to the materials by modifying, restructuring, blending them at multiple levels and creating an intermittent sense of distance and visual gaps. The ‘meanings’ are conveyed to its opposite when presented, which make the viewers’ familiar experiences become unfamiliar, therefore provides a space for philosophical reflection for them.
