Xin Yunpeng is one of the participating artists in the World Organization of Video Culture Development (VCD) 's video letter "writing" campaign, which was started in response to the coronavirus pandemic and the consequential suspension of offline activities.
"As an organization for the moving images, we noticed that videos & films have played a variety of roles in this outbreak - daily communication with friends, live-streaming lectures though usually unwillingly, vlogs documenting realities, as well as mainstream media instrumentalized for certain purposes. [...] What are real individuals facing, thinking, and doing in such a disaster? Those alternative moving images that are different from the mainstream ones, where are they and how will they look? VCD would like to take the role of a messenger, passing on the moving-image works of this particular time, thoughts about this medium, thoughts about moving images under the pandemic / the pandemic in moving images..."
