This work is the branch project of ‘
The Lasting Future’,
which is in progress from 2019. Currently there are about 12 photographic pictures，memory game cards and some related paintings and texts. Starting from the research path of ‘non-artificial nature’, I focus on the entry point to capture a kind of subtle awkwardness and sense of distance in the relationship between human and landscapes. This work shows how human’s ‘outsiders’ position is further emphasized when facing non-artificial nature after escaping from the piled up urban spectacles.
The appearances presented by these photography seems to be documentary, in fact they have been digitally modified or reconstructed, in order to emphasize the “the outlier” feeling：the appearance of human in landscape is like having just landed on the surface of an unknown planet. When shooting the original images, I chose a flat angle of the landscape, coupled with the digital processing of the details, so that the images formed a stage setting (tableaus) without context, lacking the spatiotemporal axis. People and man-made objects appear inside this "tableau", but lack a narrative connection. The appearance of human in the image seems to be an instant that can be completely ignored by nature.
