"Zero" is artist Zhu Jia's work in 2012. Based on a casual tone, the video shows a group of fragmented images with no plot. The actress in different-era attires shuttled in different atmospheres, reflecting a sense of uncertainty. These images are called "described memories" by the artist. In a standard shape pattern, the conceptual images combined with practical reality, thus remolding something anew.

The artist attempts to explore the distance between outside "artificial images" and conventional "visual experience". Lens moved slowly so that the viewer has enough time to gaze details of images, carefully selected everyday objects and fictional landscape, retaining a sensibility. In the conversation "Do I resemble her?", here "her", at one hand, refers to a narrator of the past, at another those that are narrated by the narrator. Described "images" are mixed with imagination of "description" from today's point of view, juxtaposed with today's "scene" in the same time and same space in a surreal and irrational manner. Subjective perspective adrift, "soul" that run through the work, and the complexity and multiplicity in between gradually emerged.
