2019-2021 (on going)
In 2019, I was hired by a theme park as a seasonal photographer, responsible for shooting animals and children. Panda was the first animal to film.
Before going in, we all have to step on the footplate filled with disinfectant.
Its bedroom is surrounded by stainless steel, filled with the smell of grass. It is the first time I watched a panda in close distance. After three seconds of excitement, my mood sank.
The room has only a stainless steel bed, and there are poops on the ground. There is light coming out from the bedroom, I guess there is a skylight.
Visitors will use food to lure it to the stainless steel window and interact with it. Then, it will lie on the bed to look at the sky.
