Two worlds wandering

Entry Description

The series of works adopt Staged Photography to exhibit my perception of Taipei, with mirrors to explore "the inner world" and reflect myself inside my heart. Visual pictures interlaced among photographers and observers reveal that a real world and a fictional world are mutually communicating. Taipei in my impression often drizzles a lot. It brings me a feeling of melancholy. When surrounded by skyscrapers I feel rather small. In my memory Taipei seems just like a part of fragments, populated but with long distance where people aspire to a warm and caring "inside world". Facing ice-cold architecture and a po-faced "outside world" is like people hustle to open umbrellas in rainy days, seeing nothing but umbrellas. As with seen through mirrors, the world reflects in part not in whole and is interweaved between wanders of memories and reality.
