Untitled Self-portrait (Niagara) © Shen Wei 2010

I recently participated the Light Work Artist-in-Residency Program in Syracuse, NY. The residency was an amazing experience, taking place in the beautiful Syracuse University. During my time there, I have continuously worked on my self-portrait project I Miss You Already. In the last few days of my residency, I have visited Niagara Falls. The falls are breathtaking and intimidating. Ten minutes before my departure, I decided to make a self-portrait in front the falls. I was telling myself I would regret all my life if I didn't.
