Where Do You Stand?
The mediums I use are different measurements of graph paper and light blue ink pens in so constructing my creations own language. I chose graph paper because it is precise, and you could even say, a class-oriented structure that implies "Calculation and Measurement" to convey my message. Straight and horizontal lines imitate longitude and latitude that calculate an intertwined stance. Every line represents a rung in the ladder of society’s structure. In climbing the ladder of society you cannot change the rules.
My technique is in dismissing the gorgeous eye-catching colors. When one creates a plane on paper it fills up the area quickly, instead I simply just use points and lines to fill the page. With every little dot and lines going in different directions, it is constantly repeating, accumulating, everything repeats and repeats, infinitely. I use a light color and symbols to deepen the repeated message in the piece. It’s a slow and careful creative process, filled with faint and heavy messages. I use these materials because I think, sometimes you do not need to convey your ideas through making noise, but only through silence comes the message.
My theme in “Where Do You Stand” is, are you one of the eyes looking around gossiping and creating an empty person’s outline? Or, are you the presence of the body and let the gazzes affect your perspective of yourself and the way you view the world? In the current generation of diverse perspectives, and our answers aren’t exclusive. Anyone’s opinion can become a weapon and used to harm others. But what is the most important, the judgment of the eyes? Or ......What do you think?
