Driver Xiao Wang and His Daughter - Xiao Wang‘s Relaxing

Xiao Wang comes from Hebei and makes a living as a driver, I often use his services. He has a four year’s old little girl, going to a kindergarten out of the fifth ring road in Beijing. Each day after work Xiao Wang goes to pick up his daughter. Does his daughter know what he is doing? I asked her already. It seems that what she is the most familiar with are the scenes with her father after his work. In fact, part of Xiao Wang’s life is constituted by what he imagined to enter his daughter’s world.
I cut Xiao Wang’s pictures separating and reassembling head and members like a shadow theatre’s puppet, I numbered them and asked his daughter to make a picture puzzle, to see her own vision of her father’s life.
