Sathorn Sunset is a project consisting of photography and video that focuses on Bangkok’s Sathorn district – a major commercial area that includes multiple high-rise condominiums and office buildings.
The work features sunset scenes taken in and around Sathorn Unique Tower from January 2018.
The luxury condominium began being built in 1990 but remains unfinished after the Asian financial crisis in 1997 put a halt on funding and construction.
The 185m high tower makes use of exuberant Classical architectural elements, particularly Classical Order columns usually found in Greek and Roman architecture, which was in vogue during the economic wave of the early 90s.
Sathorn Sunset (2018) is part of Dream Property, a project that examines the nature of property development and its relationship to the city through various media including photography, film, text appropriation and site-specific installation.
