其中,国际知名景区与一切具有“欧式风情”的画面是最受欢迎的背景选择;而在现实生活中,同类景观在过去十余年内亦在中国大陆变得普遍。两类“人为构建的现实”(constructed realities) 映照出当下国人普遍向往的一种理想生活,就如同我们渐渐趋同化的城市景观,这种“理想生活”的愿景也变得越来越相似,它们华美而虚幻,在巨大的气泡中的闪着金光。

“Green screen photo studio” is a new business mode that appeared in China during the past 10 years. The store simply consists of a green background and a machine with inserted camera. The costumers could choose their preferred backgrounds from more than ten thousands images – from worldwide tourist sites to celebrity portraits, from cartoon characters to 3D effect images of luxury residential areas. Facing their illusionary ideal places on the screen, the costumers happily stand and pose in front of a green screen, and receive a photo showing that they “have been” there.
Among all the background images, those of world famous tourist sites and of European styles are the most popular choices. Whereas in reality, this same type of landscape has also became common scenes all over Mainland China in the past ten years. Both the virtual backgrounds from the “Green screen photo studio” and the real buildings in our real world – these two types of “constructed realities” both reflect an ideal lifestyle of this era that generally yearned for by most people with different backgrounds. They are resplendent yet unreal, shining like gold in giant bubbles.
