An Observer’s Report 1_ No.1

Series concept:
We live from moment to moment in a mix of truth and fiction that we consider to be reality. The distinction between reality and fiction is a relationship such that we require one in order to recognize the other, and at times they are so closely connected that we are unable to distinguish the two.
I create my works of photography by using my body and art objects that I craft myself. In this series, I insert a fictional character as an observer wandering this boundary between reality and fiction, expressed in the form of “An Observer’s Report.”
