"RMB is the abbreviation for the Chinese currency, the renminbi. Renmin means 'the people'. And the R could almost stand for republic or revolution. In Chinese, the name sounds like 'the people's city'. So it comes to take on all these associative meanings. I think it also sounds like 'remember city', a city of memories, because it is actually documenting what cities look like today."
