Liu Di got the idea for his bizarre Animal Regulation series (2008) on a bus ride through the crowded suburbs of Beijing. “Looking out at the decrepit housing blocks, I had a vague but strong feeling that there was something missing between the ground and the sky,” he recalls. He felt the urge to add something that would make people take a fresh, long look at these familiar scenes.
Using photo editing software, he took a panda, a rhinoceros, a monkey, a rabbit and a frog and inserted them at gigantic scale into shabby urban settings. By shoehorning these bottom-heavy beasts into back streets, he highlighted the relationships “between nature and human society.”
