沉思,是指对某一事物或意向进行认真、深入的思考。
大部分人潜意识里认为动脑子去思考是对他享受休闲时光的一种打扰,于是思考变成一件让人“劳累”的事儿。在这个快节奏的时代,沉思更是成了一件奢侈的事儿,部分人索性选择随思想大流,享受思考舒适圈带来的“安全感”;部分人则以“思考者”自称,将重复他人的想法伪装成“独立思考”。当然,还有少部分人在坚持真正思考,静心观察这个世界。改造世界的正是这些“少数人”。
我们渴望对不同领域的问题进行深入思考与探讨,抽出时间进行“自我沉浸”,以便更好地了解自身与社会。
The theme “Contemplate” refers to serious and in-depth thinking about a certain thing or intention.
Most people subconsciously assume that in-depth thinking is exhausting and unenjoyable. Hence, contemplation becomes a luxury. Some simply choose to follow the mainstream, immersing themselves into the "sense of security" brought by conventional thinking. Some copy others’ opinion, yet disguise themselves as “independent thinkers”. Fortunately, there’ s still a minority of people who are actually thinking and observing the society. The power to change the world is holding in their hands.
We want to create a community where we can immerse ourselves in profound thoughts and discussions about different subjects, so that we can better understand ourselves and the society.

PengFei Li

Documentary Director
李鹏飞 #现实派导演# 李鹏飞导演,毕业于中央美术学院。他是当下“盛世中国”一个始终以观察者身份存在的导演。他的影像意图和故事背后的想法没有太多出现在观众的视野当中。他始终把自己的存在感降到最低,但作品却都强烈的体现出对当下现实的思考和态度。我们可以客观沉静的去看去听去感受,去思考,让自己暂时脱离开这个荒谬魔幻的世界,或许你也可以是一个喧嚣尘世里的“局外人”。 跟李鹏飞导演一起经历影像大世界里的光怪陆离,看形态各异的芸芸众生,漫步于沉思路上。 PengFei Li #Realism director# Director PengFei Li graduated from the Central Academy of Fine Arts. He is a director who views himself as an observer in this “golden era of China.” Many of his thoughts and intentions behind the image and stories are unknown to the audience, for he always tries to hide from public attention. But his works vividly reflect his attitudes and contemplation about the reality. To see, to listen, to feel and to think calmly and objectively, we can free ourselves from this absurd world, and be an “outsider,” if possible. Let’s travel through the image world with Director Li, listen to stories of people from all walks of life, to experience and to contemplate.

He was also the co-organizer of the new media, Leiphone. Forbes once ranked Xie in the “30under30”Asia List.

When the two-dimensional technology deployed on the ground by humans is highly developed, the drones have paved the way leading to three-dimensional space for computing science and IoT technology.
