From the heart of post-colonial Macau, participants blow their qi (energy) into balloons which are then transported 2,000 km to rural Yunnan, passing through the financial centre, Hong Kong; industrial Zhenjiang; Baise, home to several ethnic minorities; agricultural Luoping and ancient Jianshui. Accompanying the contained qi on its long voyage, the artist arouses a range of responses from the people she meets, - turning the encounters into occasions for conversation, participation and collection.  At the destination in Yunnan, village children receive the qi and enact a performance of its release from the balloons.

"Transporting Qi" denotes the mobility of formless qi through space and time; establishes links between people of different places, race, society and culture; and creates memory and emotion. Cecilia seeks to restore people’s sense of self amid the threats to individuality as the old gives way to the new in modern China.
