  • The earliest piece in TIME MACHINE was made in 2015, whereas most photographs were created between 2017 to 2019.

    The original idea was a series of visual studies on objects, photographed with a lens I seldom used, in a minimal way and with least sentimental elements added to it. All I used was existing light. The photograph was completed in a seven and a half inch square, surface mounted on spruce stained in black, with a thickness of one and half inch. An acrylic gel medium was applied as an adhesive agent as well as protection for the surface. The photograph thus became a piece of object. In the larger context I regrouped them organically, and used these individual pieces as vocabularies, or phrases to form a piece of narrative. A selection of photographs were included in the Hong Kong and Toronto exhibitions. I have also collaborated with Gary Michael Dault on some of the work from this series, in which he wrote haiku after the photograph. It has provided a new reading, or another layer to the work.
