From Liu Xiaodong to Chen Nong, photography to traditional Chinese brush painting, this slideshow presents the works of artists inspired by the Three Gorges Dam. Whether an artist was trying to capture the daily experiences of displaced communities or Man's desire to tame nature's wildness, one thing is for certain: through the lens of the artist, we see the project, and the river, anew.
