Domestication
"Domesticated" is one of the primeval tricks to make usage of natural. I regard the world of internet as today's new nature, I start virtual hunting by using keyword「animal + kiss」search on the internet. If searching is like hunting, downloading is to capture. I print the “prey” with its original pixel and scale, therefore digital images join the practical world in its primitive look. The "domestication" in this work is to redraw images on usual A4 paper. It's a reversal conquest from ...

Angle-Fortune
People have a human instinct for natural omen, we want to foresee the future thought the interaction with nature. During my residency in Seoul, I fortuitously saw a tour ad of Baekdam Valley in subway — hundreds of taller than human stone-pile being stacked on the riverbed for wishing luck, people rise it so high as if it goes higher more fortune they will get. Nobody knows how this ritual began, I guess it may be the breathtaking process of stacking make people regarded it was “lucky ...

Coast Mining
In Tainan, we have a disregard coast, enormous amounts of consumer waste trashed on this remote beach. Some oyster-farmer came here to burn oyster trellis in order to retrieve metals. Garbage that blurred with discard or burn, further deteriorated with heavy weathering near the coast, giving texture with erosion and sunlight. Over time, shells, sand and petrochemical waste that is hard to decompose by nature fusing each other into some strange objects. Nature domesticated these unconsciously ...

Museum of Taxidermy
Lambda prints on photo paper、mounting on plexiglass (acrylic、aluminium frame)、UV prints on metel plate|Size variety ,15 pieces|2010-2013 Human-being ascertains another creature thought our own blind spot. Which some times appears technical and reasonable, but eventually the empathy that can't prevent makes a grotesque that legitimate to civilization, yet irrational to the real nature, like a taxidermy. In my hometown Tainan, there once an old taxidermy room, some of the taxidermy insi ...
