‐ The City Series‐
We live in an age where the concept of ideology has become blurred. In this day and age, any idea can easily pass as an ideology. The artist’s grasp in these complicated times is reflected in the dual nature of the being.
From a philosophical standpoint, duplicity, which invoked the chaos of the present age, is revealed and presents a new angle that is not apparent in the plainness of an ordinary image. This is done using modern technology such as digital image processing.
The purpose of all beings is evolution. Evolution is based on the premise of change, which has a nature of flowing incessantly like a panorama. An endless mobius strap is originally made up of tiny little spots, the beauty of which cannot be recognized visually, but it can be sublimated by exposing the hidden inner meaning of these spots.
All moving things are the continuity of things stopped, and things stopped are a start for moving. The evolution and change of a being is the endless continuity of duplicity.
The duplicity penetrates through a consciousness world and sensation world, a faith world and supposition world, and a confident life and imaginary life, which are like the dual nature of a coin. Thus, the area hinted with an index and undiscovered is considered to be more important.
There is no significance in taking a photograph of the duplicity existing in all beings, but the focus of this work is how to reproduce and illustrate a hidden truth using an art tool.
The expression technique that reproduces photo-realistic images from non-realistic images and photographs through the use of modern technology fully illustrates the double-faced characteristics of duplicity. In addition, “The City” series of this work tries to express the dual nature of humans in a society wherein humans are the central subjects by enlarging, accentuating, and distorting images that existing contents could not show, using a digital image process.
All moving things are stopped, and things that were stopped are shown flowing. Objects before time and space are duplicated ones and duplicity is the endless subject of my work.
