In parallel to decades of relentless urbanization, the Chinese government has been dramatically redefining its countryside. With continuous investment in infrastructure and poverty alleviation unmatched by Western counterparts, China’s stage-setting for urban-rural connections in the 21st century might be unanticipated to the rest of the world. The installation shows how a mix of state and market interventions directs digital transformation, agricultural technology, tourism, and culture in reestablishing the role of, and life in, the countryside.
