I was hopeful to send an e-mail to Green-Room Ideas Cooperation and to receive a quick answer. After a few exchanges with them, we decided to meet the fourteen of November (2017) at their office in Da’an District, Section 2, Xinyi Road. It also appeared to be their atelier. Around 2 pm I came in front of a small alley, I wasn’t sure it was the correct address, I couldn’t see anything, no branding door, no sign, nothing. I crossed the street. After a few backs and forth I ultimately spotted a small blackboard. I went up, on the first floor, rang the bell, a few seconds later I saw a familiar face. Hao Ming unlocked the door we shook hands, I proceeded. We weren’t alone in the space. A young woman was also working. I sat down, settled my stuff whilst looking around. It was a small, lovely space. He proposed something to drink I took a coffee. He explained that the space we were was their retail space, although they had another office on the second floor. He also told me that I could join him after the interview to get additional pictures if I felt the need.
