Xue Wang says this about her collection, "My theme of the fairground started with a chance visit to a traditional steam fair at night. The cult movie Carnival of Souls, which uses a dream-within-a-dream plot device, also intrigued me. What fed my imagination was not the hurly-burly bustle of the crowds but the sense of isolation and melancholy. The girl here is a nocturnal soul who plays with her companions in the veil of darkness. All the punters have gone home and the little group gather to celebrate their own fun fair."
