About The Artwork

Pigment Print For a photographer, to see means not only eyes and views. You definitely need an eye to see, but you actually see through visual perception, which includes all your senses and memories. There have been numerous controversies on Barbie doll owing to its inborn duplicity and abnormal figure. Despite these critics, Barbie doll is still an idol for many children and women. Besides it’s been a long time to appear black Barbie dolls by a lot of disputes and there is discrimination between white and black Barbie dolls like the real world. People’s dual aspect and mentality towards Barbie doll became the motive of choosing Barbie doll as a main material for my work. I wanted to stimulate the perception and subconsciousness of the views with realities—no matter however unrealistic they seem to be—through various methods, such as personification, exaggeration, intentional ignorance, and metaphor. Those like the fleeting moment before a traffic accident, murder, or voyeurism actually do exist, but to the most people who are lucky enough not to experience any of these, they are just some other people’s business. Depending on the viewer’s subconsciousness and experience, a piece of photo can evoke completely different kinds of inspirations. I made the new familiar time and space that looks like a real world where Barbie dolls actually live by distorting our familiar time and space. The existing world was disappeared, but a new space for the unconscious was created to find a meeting point of consciousness and unconsciousness
