Stone, Glass And Many Other Things is a practice on the representation of image via a series of collages and photographs. I intend to create such an experience that images can become tangible records of reality when additional layers of information are applied. It originates from two photographs I took, of a set of glassware and of a stone split into two pieces. Glass is a transparent products from consumerism and industrialism; while stone represents onerosity and penetration. By reconstructing the original segments into new image, and photographing the interactions between hands and objects, I not only reconsider the image itself directly but also hope to study how its idealized meaning can be re-interpreted by audiences. The development process indicates how we relate the image representation to the physical existence. The outcomes of this process is a flattened combination of objects and meanings, and a dilution of time and space. Further, I re-developed many of the still-life photographs, striving to compile photographic archives and found objects into a holistic view of image with its representation.
