From Waterloo to New Cross is a series looking at cycling as an alternative way to perceive the urban landscape in an automobile dominated society. The image presents my daily commute cycling experience. The work is two image printed on two 1-meter square scarfs.
SE1 trough observation
In “shanshui” tradition, the artists observe the landscape through the Confucianism, Taoism or Buddhism scoop; use the technic of “Cun” and paint the landscape in a poetic and artistic fashion. In the making of “SE1 through observation”, “flanuer” become the new way of observation; the fragments of the landscape become the new “Cun”. This is my sublation of shanshui tradition. The work is a 4.7-meter long darkroom manipulated print mounted on canvas.
Singular Heterotopia is a public space in which the boundary of time and space is blurred. However, the seemingly empty space has hundreds of ghostly figures in it. They are in the same time present and absent in the space.
The term “sheen” is the glow of everyday object developed from daily usage. It`s in fact is the product of oils that permeate into an object over years of use and touch. Different from shine, sheen with addition softness was appreciated in oriental aesthetic. To look for the beauty of sheen is to look into the trace of usage. Through the usage, people seams gives live to the object that reflect in the sheens. The marks from usage are memory of the objects. The sheen is like the winkle of old man it all have story and myth. “The sheen” project looks into the house in London that I have lived in for last three years.
