Lingfei Ren – Metropolitan Zoo

Nov 20, 2020 - Lingfei Ren

The space I stay is home, also not home.
The roommates I have are home members, but temporary cohabitation warrants no real companionship.
Escape is far-fetched and can be deadly as I am not accustomed to life outside of the city.
I’m stuck here like an animal in the zoo.
Struggling and compromising: in the end, I’m passively accepting the space that I live.
Buried under hopes and dreams, all that is left in the metropolitan life is its glamour.
