Translated into Chinese, City Disqualified means ‘having lost the credentials to be a city’. Disqualified (shi ge or diao ge) is actually a technical term from movie editing that means to ‘drop frames’. The phenomenon of shi ge delays and pauses movie projection. So aside from meaning ‘to lose credentials’, shi ge also has a meaning that comes from the technical term discussed above: that the raw material waits to be reconstituted.

Yuan Goang-ming is acknowledged as a video artist rather than a photographic artist. His only digital photography City Disqualified, however, gained much attention in 2001* and has been exhibited around the world since its first presentation at IT Park in Taipei…
