Fanxi Sun, born in Zhejiang, China, works primarily with film and photography. Since moving from her home city to Midwest America for college, Sun has been in the constant practice of adapting to a different society and transforming with new ideologies. Reflecting her contemplations and questions, Sun’s film work examines self-understanding, self-expression, and self-awareness; and illustrates bonds, discrepancies, and external impediments in interpersonal relationships. Her still photographic work is influenced by her filmmaking. These black-and-white works correspond to her pursuit of integration and her fascination with human-to-environment connections. Sun is pursuing MFA Photography and Film at Virginia Commonwealth University starting fall 2021.
