Mǎorganic = Mǎo + organic, is a series of photographic works where "Mǎo" is the pronunciation of the Chinese word "冇", which means "no or nothing". Indeed, "Mǎorganic" connotes "not-organic" or "inorganic". The production of man-made landscape is an attempt to reshape nature through emulation, simulation, zoning and control, which in turn influences or even dominates our understanding of natural

landscapes. In the end, man-made landscape simply becomes our definition for nature itself. Therefore, this work explore the relation between man-made and natural objects in order to understand how they change or rectify people’s perception to what nature is, trying to seek answer as to on what foundation modern city dwellers define nature.
