Perspective Projection is a series of sculpture, which is not about the actual representation of reality but about the relationships among human beings, urban space and the society. The series explores the multifaceted emotions within these relationships. Each side of the sculptures employs different textures, colors and brushstrokes to reveal different characteristics. While each side is different, together they form contrasts and connections. It is like the scenes your eyes capture when hurrying through the streets and crowds. Every side represents its own unique time and space. Viewers will not be able to see all the sides from one fixed perspective. While other sides are partially visible through certain angles, viewers may be driven by curiosity to move around and examine each side of the work. It shows that we are used to see the world and ourselves from one single perspective but inevitably, we are curious about the opposite viewpoint. Based on the complementary colors, the sculptures feature artificial and repetitive brushstrokes to emphasize the combination of urban landscape and the nature, which is defined by the changing colors and curved lines. These series of sculptures are contradiction formed by the juxtaposition of the urban and natural sensations.
