Third Eye
The earth has become a cultural proposition in the realm of art, especially, with the ecological and environmental changes that all human beings witness in the 21st century, a great deal of visible things and perceptible phenomena all around the globe have been drawing together as a shared experience of humankind. By extending the perceptible scope of human beings’ empirical world and expanding the mysterious and unknown space in the new circumstances, such an occurrence triggers a “global phenomenon” of human survival for the present. Based on a pictorial composition resembling the “annual rings” in visual sense, in accordance with the artistic language of conceptual photography, the photograph “Third Eye” brings together an abstract and conceptualized visual construction of image so as to create a mysterious vision in motion similar to the “mind’s eye” with an enigmatically purple atmosphere and vigorous skin texture. All of this seems to originate from the “oxidation effect” of an unexplored domain on the earth, which conveys the viewers to a dynamic horizon.
