Discontinuity here entails taking photographs of everyday life for visual post-production. The images are diagonally cut, with the two parts of the image slightly shifted from left to right; uneven edges were then trimmed to create complete photographs.
A sense of visual shifting is created as everyday settings and things were precisely cut, along with slight shifting of their positions. The photographs that I have selected are composed of my everyday activities (food, residential space, and modes of transportation), and as the mundane images are precisely cut, our customary way of seeing is also altered. An unfamiliar feeling arises from the illogical results created on the images. The originally familiar settings and things seem to still be splitting into two, and compared to the evenly trimmed edges, the slight shifts of the images appear even more obvious, resulting in a visual experience of defamiliarization with familiar settings and things.
