Ji Jun's work often concerns his personal experiences. Using art as his medium, he aims to actualise emotions and sensations that are only present under certain time and space into tangible forms, and hopes that viewers will in turn experience a multitude of emotions. Ji Jun does not create actual imagery but rather construct an overall atmosphere where viewers find their past memories synchronize with his artwork. Indeed, 'past' cannot recur, neither is it the artist's intention. Ji Jun is instead 'recreating' collective memories, utilising them to stimulate and excite viewers' emotions in order to provoke futher sensory experiences. Therefore, Ji Jun's work not only records memories, it also recreates memories.
