DUPLICATION is a photography series staged in different toy factories across South China. Danwen Xing observed the entire toy production process and how designs are made for the international market to match the desires of people in every corner of the world. The toys are made to represent ideal beauty, but Xing deconstructs this by focusing her critical lens on the process and exploring the aesthetics of the identical parts. Although the photos show only a fraction of the huge quantities of toy parts made in the factories, the work urges the eye to examine their differences and search for individuality.

这组摄影作品是在华南不同玩具加工厂里利用局部零件现场搭建摆拍完成。邢丹文观察了整个玩具生产过程,以及这些玩偶造型是如何设计来满足国际市场的需求,以迎合世界各地各类消费者的喜好和愿望。这些芭芘玩具设计和组合无处不体现出大众性的理想化,但艺术家却通过镜头解构其造型,以批判性的视角聚焦在这些几乎完全一模一样的审美形象。虽然这些图片只展现了数量巨大的工厂里未完成的玩具零件,但引导我们去思考验证因此而导致的差异性,寻找其人类审美个性。
