Garden of Mirrored Flowers
|Author:||Hu Fang / 胡昉|
Fang’s novel tells the story of a man in the process of designing a theme park, called Garden of Mirrored Flowers, and is an adaptation and transformation of the classical Chinese novel Jin Hua Yuan, or Flowers in the Mirror, from the Qing Dynasty. Beginning as a pictorial journey through myriad advertisements and the way they allow for many different entries into reality, there are parallel lines between the construction in reality and in the imagination of how a garden has evolved within an historic process. The story ends up in a big opening ceremony of the theme park where history seems to have been completely consumed and absorbed by contemporary social movement.
