         The video employs the metaphor of the poplar tree to mirror the controlled, transient nature of our living environments, reflecting on the broader dynamics of unyielding and irreversible urban change. 

         "Over the Land" is an invitation to deeply reflect on the essence of change itself. Through its narrative, the project advocates for a humane and equitable approach to urban development and a mindful reconsideration of our collective trajectory in the relentless advance of urbanization. It aims to integrate the principles of humanism and social justice into the discourse of urban transformation, confronting the rapid urbanization of China and the often-overlooked human cost that accompanies such progress.
