Between presence and absence
work statement

The object inside the casing is seen as a dual image. It is an art work in which a special film is adhered to a clear acrylic frame that offers different perspectives that vary when seen different angles.

This implies that anyone can see the same object differently on their point of view or standpoint.

Once the artwork is illuminated by the exhibition’s display spotlight, its brightness and color becomes more intense. However, when it is displayed near a window under direct sunlight, it produces gradually increasing color in the morning light, then becomes duller towards evening.

The object inside the casing, which is inspired by an antique frame, is made from materials such as FRP (fiber reinforced plastic) or sometimes a store-bought frame. I emphasize a sense of deprivation by removing the portrait which should be in the frame. It is my intention with this art to blur the hue, and introduce a sense of emotional loss and uncertainness like a loved one who will someday be gone.
