I don’t know if you are still there, in
that hazy urban forest. All the buildings gradually disappear on the horizon
line in the far distance. They float in the air, gleaming in the sky. They
might exist, or might not exist.
The idea of this piece is to show a
mirage-liked effect that is caused by dust or mist in the air in the city
landscape and I call it “mirage phenomenon.” This work is not just showing the
concept of the mirage phenomenon. There is also an implication on this piece
presenting an idea that what we can see and reach might not always as seen. For
example, what we might not be able or have not yet reached,
does not mean they are non-existent, and vice versa.
