Wong Wen Io
Won g We n I o
The concept of this work is formed on the idea of ‘three perfections’,
the multi-point perspective and the Chinese saying about the perception
of mountain Lu Shan which depicts the different views that one sees
depending on one’s positions in the mountain.
Using three-dimensional Chinese characters to create a shadow version
of Chinese Shan Shui (‘mountain-water’) painting and the exploration of
spatial sensations of shapes, I seek to investigate the dual realities of the
things we perceive in real life and our own perception on them.
