Piying in Edinburgh

Chinese shadow puppetry, 2021

Based on the Chinese Intangible heritage craft -- piying (Chinese shadow puppetry), I created my own version of piying with acetate, inspired by traditional Scottish and Chinese costumes and patterns. I took my piying to various locations around Edinburgh and shared photos and videos of our travels on social media. Through this project, I hope to honor the heritage craft and raise awareness about disappearing Chinese historical cultures in today's digital age.
