Substitute Paradise 是一系列探索人多面向的內在自我作品。自我認同一直是我創作及關注的主題,此系列作品源自於我渴望逃避讓自己感到痛苦和恐懼的內在自我。當內在和外顯的自我互相衝突牴觸,兩相糾結又亟欲擺脫緊繫彼此的枷鎖;然而,經過無數次和內在自我的激辯,作為意志和表象的自我終究無功而返,表面上暫時相安無事,如此的寧靜卻是在醞釀下一次的風暴。這深囚於體內的存在也促使我透過攝影對人們自我的複雜性及多變性展開求索。


Substitute Paradise
is a series of work that explores the different facets of one’s inner self. The identification of self has always been an intriguing subject to me. The motivation for this project originates in a keen awareness of the existence of an other within me and an inexorable eagerness to escape from the source of my angst and tumult. The two versions of self contradict with each other that they are both intertwined, yet yearning to break free. The problematic ambiguity of the self urges me to probe into the complexity and depth of the various selves in a person.

Through the process of producing these images, I enter the transitory paradise that I create, in which soul is the ticket for admission. This utopia has nothing to do with true and false, nor the limit of time and space. When consciousness freezes along with the camera flash, I do not exist in the world. These subjects uncover my desire to escape from reality. They are the hidden ghosts within me. Yet, they are my salvation, taking me away, somewhere nice.
