The everyday objects that surround us are so ordinary that we can clearly picture them even if we close our eyes, but just because these objects are ordinary does not mean that they are not special. “The things you don't pay attention to are the things which usually value the most.” I want to record those “no-attention” moments to look at regular objects with different perspectives, and present how different and unique they can be.
The images content in my projects are all regular groceries and taken by phone camera. I also got inspired by John Cage, and I experimented on the “weird” visual aspect so they could appear to look unexpected. I tried to create a “I-might-know-what’s-going” scenes to make audiences jump in and out confusion. The motion clip is more considered as metaphor of a lifetime recording, and the book works as a written diary to record these “ordinary” life moments. The whole project focuses on the experimental process from images, to motion clips, to a book, as a continuous series. I remove the colors of all the contents, so everything would be read with more emphasis on shape and composition. As what the title says, Shape It could represent anything and when we try to see everyday objects in a new light, we can start to realize how important and special these normal objects can be.
Circle but not circle is to find relations between 2d flat shapes and 3d objects. The main focus here is based on the experiments of circle shape, including solid circles, hollow circles and outlined circles. By playing with the scale and perspective of objectives, it creates interesting visual patterns.
