Um terreno vago na metrópole de Xangai. Um pedaço de terreno baldio urbano, onde milhares de turistas chineses entram e saem diariamente de autocarros. Enquanto se espalham para a cidade, a artista portuguesa Tatiana Macedo caminha entre os autocarros vazios e fotografa as janelas. Tal como os arredores urbanos, o interior do autocarro ganha uma nova vida através do seu olhar. Reflectido nas janelas do autocarro está o tempo, ponto de viragem entre o passado e o presente, assim como a cidade antiga que se dissolve num cliché de modernidade com a sua linha do horizonte dos edifícios mais altos do mundo.

A vacant lot in the metropolis of Shanghai. A patch of urban wasteland, where thousands of Chinese tourists get in and out of tour buses day after day. As they swarm out to the city, Tatiana Macedo walks between the empty buses and photographs the windows. Like the urban surroundings, the bus’s interior takes on a new life via her eye. Reflected in the windows of the bus is time, the turning point between past and present, as the ancient city melts into a cliché of modernity with its skyline of the world’s tallest buildings.
