Photography, for me, is like a meditation process, where I seek for the origin of the innermost thoughts and emotions. The body of work 觀心呈像 (meaning “image forming with the mind” in Chinese) records my experiences, thoughts and feelings, while I detach myself from whatever I encounter. I use photography as a way to perceive the world and my mind.
By employing a process like meditating on emotions and choices, I next look through the camera lens to re-frame how a change in mindset can change in perception.
In 觀心呈像, I explore the concepts of peacefulness, impermanence, being a free spirit, mind-perception relationship, and the possibilities of perception.
