Quasi Land. 2017


Void of Image is a work that question about “imaginary” or “impression” of a certain type of space. As for this case, this work was anchored in a generator room of a public building. Before entering into the geneartor room, we firstly have an imagination of noisy and mechanic sound, which was being illustrated by movies or television program. Our imagination of space are now being controlled and rendered due to the movies industry and media companies.

In the Void of Image, a speaker was built in the generator room by the artist, Which provided a dramatic mechanic sound. With the clear linear light started the whirled around the space, the sound suddenly stopped and remain a silence space, and the image of the generator room is being redefining by the viewers. Was a space really sense like what it has to be? Or were we all being defined by the other images that came into our mind before we experience?

THE 90°. 2016


After Macao returned to motherland China, Tourism development has got a significantly rise, the historical landmark building is occupied by tones of tourist everyday, which makes this place become an unreachable place, a vacuum area for the locals.

90 degrees is said to be the “right angle”, it comes from an ancient thought representing things could be stand still properly on this gravity earth instead of falling. Nowadays, architecture and technology has tend to become a state of liquefaction, the form of matters have a diversify appearance, which blurring the boundary of “right” or “wrong”.

in my work, i point out the moon’s position with a laser, which the moon, the architecture object and the laser light formed an 90 degrees. The main object of the photography is likely to be virtualised and disappeared from the reality.
