Past and Present – Jacky Song
My hometown Shenzhen has experienced a huge change in the past decade. In 1970s, it was only a small fishing village without any signs of industry. Now 50 years have passed, and it has grown into an international metropolis with high-technology industries. Born in Shenzhen, I enjoyed its prosperity as I grew up. However, I missed its past, and the most fascinating history of Shenzhen. In these pieces, I began my journey to experience his past, to witness his metamorphosis again.

My AP concentration focuses on my struggles and feelings living with Type One Diabetes. I wanted to explore my disease while providing people with visual representations of life with diabetes. I set out to create works that non-diabetics can use to understand different aspects of the disease without experiencing it firsthand. Overall, my pieces represent what it feels like to have Type One Diabetes.

My concentration is insects. Throughout my life, there is one thing that attracts me the most besides art, and that is insects. Insects are so tiny and prevalent that most people won’t notice or care to look at them. But from my experience at a young age, insects are the most fascinating creatures. They not only have captivating colors, but they also exhibit interesting behaviors. I want to illustrate an enjoyable little story about them to encourage more people to appreciate their beauty.
