As a matter of things
What would you bring with you if you are studying abroad for a few years? Featured in this photo series, international students at the triangle area present their own answers.

We are living in a charming time in which we can get to almost anywhere in the world given the resources at hand. However, leaving home is neither a simple choice nor an easy task getting ready for. Our past experiences, personalities, and aspirations are all packed into luggage that vary from 45 to 62 inches, in the every belonging we bring with us. All these belongings, in turn, help create a space distinct, yet interacts from within the place of our arrival.

Days of No Significance
Days of No Significance depicts the Inner Mongolia autonomous region of China, a province twice as big as Texas.

In the early 20th century, the region historically inhabited by the ethnic Mongols was divided into the Mongolian People's Republic and the Inner Mongolia autonomous region of China, where the Mongolian-Prairie culture and the Han-Chinese culture had already been interacting for hundreds of years. Thanks to the world's largest rare earth and coal reserves, Inner Mongolia has become one of the wealthiest places in contemporary China, at the cost of environment contamination and loss of culture.

The film focuses on the everyday life of Inner Mongolia, the days of no significance from an observational point of view.
