  • apocalyptic archaeology

    Apocalyptic Archaeology features works that are depictions of a ruined world. The works are meditations on the brevity of life, and reveal the awareness of passing time, erosion and decay, and the ultimate deterioration of manmade artifacts, such as architecture, interiors, and landscapes.

Of Austereness

Inspired by the uniqueness of Irving Penn's noted constructed acute corner setup in some of his portraits, Of Austereness examines the secluded setting, allowing the imagination of what could be a solitude moment within an interior. Through a staged/constructed three-dimensional miniature environment, the image gives an opportunity for the viewer, not to convey a full narrative, yet a limited lines of reflective sentences. The contour of a miniature Lounge Chair and Ottoman by Charles Eames and the soft light simulates the modern-like musing and comfort while some imperfections remain to remind how unreal, mysterious the environment as to that meditative process itself.
