Landscrap and Mindscape




Landscrap and Mindscape is a group of photographic nature-scape fully constructed and fabricated by repurposing daily scraps. By using photographic language, imageries in this series try to fool viewers’ eyes and simultaneously provide clues to expose the trick.

Utilising viewers’ insight of the subject matter to break the misleading illusions. Imageries in this series question the recognition of inexistent sceneries, and imply that individual recept is an epitome of one’s previous encounters.

This group of photographic work gives a chance to review earnings from seeing, and encourage people to re-evaluate their perspective in order to enrich understanding of self.
