Reflections (How Do I
Not Get Out
of My Own
Labyrinth) was created in Fall
2011 after my trip to Prague. It was an
inspiring trip but a heartbroken one.
The frustration and anxiety from human
relationship made me interested
in the world of reflection – the reflection
on cars and windows, especially.
The reflections of San Francisco in the Fall are very vivid. I developed a relationship in between the reflections and my self. I began to feel the presence of them and heard their voices.
They seemed to be playing with me, teasing me as a friend of mine. They were everywhere, as if they were following me… Even when I closed my eyes, I saw their colors.
When I heard the reflections were calling, I had to go out and capture them. It was an urge from deep inside of my body. At the same time, I was very afraid of them and their colors because I was exhausted by their intensity and the huge amounts. Sometimes when I walk in the city, I tried not to look at windows.. but when I see them, they are just so familiar, playful, and maybe, harmless.
Later on I figured, these reflections reflected my distorted memories and thoughts which I couldn’t express through words. Just like how human benefits from dreaming. They are my guardian angels from a lost world.
