Yueting focused on the record of some state of affairs which is making the index of the original objects through labor-intensive process. Her working media included darkroom photography, paper casting, rubbing, silicone casting, printmaking and photo transferring. The indices are ghostly which implies an emptiness, a hollowness that merely indicated “thereness,” an irrefutable partial presence but mythical and illusional. She did not aim to build mimetic copies of objects, but considered the index as a momentum to bridge the abstract and reality. The goal is to reveal the absence (the original objects) through the presence (the index) within her works.
