小島 Island

Since COVID-19 broke out, there were numerous countries put on lockdown and closed borders. People were forced to stay in their neighborhoods just like being stuck in lone islands. They were self-sufficient, seeing no hop of vitality. Also, they were afraid that it will be impossible to survive if they left the islands. This reminded me of a sentence from a book:” It would be incredibly lonely and proud when you met your fugitive monologue at a corner of an anonymous island.”

Thus, the situation inspired me to create the series work of “Island”. Each island seems to be located in an alternative universe, equipping themselves with neither suffering nor

happy loneliness while time is passing by slowly. It is so silent that you want to have a conversation with it.

The Process of creation: Every element in my work was taken from landscape photos by me. Then, I merged those images together as the scenery on an island.
