Three persons waiting for the bus at a bus stop, see the God of Wealth appearing in the opposite woods.They decide to catch him. They try to wait for his reappearance, lure him with money, and follow his traces. Finally the God of Wealth is caught and imprison in the spittoon.This work is presented as an installation with a constant jittering spittoon and peculiar sounds.
My original intention of making this work is to make another “fake video”.I chose God of Wealth which we just heard of from folklore in China. God of Wealth is a fabled mythic figure, while merchantman and people who pursue money could set God of Wealth in their store or at home and pray with three joss sticks piously every day. If asked who had ever seen God of Wealth? The answer is no. What is God of Wealth’s favorite things? No one knows. Since the belief that people who see the God will become a millionaire, people respect it. This video makes a real fun that 3 persons stood at a bus stop and suddenly saw a weird dressed man like thing, seems like God of Wealth, then they got a spittoon and intended to catch him. After a long time’s finding and using a series of means. God of Wealth was caught under the spittoon. The spittoon settled in a tabernacle displays in public and the spittoon also can’t stop shaking with some voices. Will you pray towards such a God?
