Make two smart phones face to each other with their respective front-facing cameras open in complete darkness, some infinite recursion images will appear on the screens, which is similar to the physical effect of infinite perspective when we put two plane mirrors facing to each other. But the difference is that the images on the electronic screen will randomly generate abstract lines and colors due to the delay of electronic viewfinder hardware and its refresh rate. The color blocks in the Digital Light Trio in Color are all created by this way without exception.
“The world has become a fantasy of the screen.” Compared with the specific information presented by the electronic screen in the normal state, these floating, random and abstract color blocks created by the interaction between screen and camera have become a heterogeneous existence for me.
This series of works contain the videos recorded by the front-facing cameras of two cell phones as well as image sequences, images directly captured by the camera, and the combinations of color blocks and direct photography. Through these photography, I am trying to explore and discuss about the feeling of uncertainty and emptiness inside me in this spectacular world full of screens.
