“Looking Through the Absolute” (2021-2022) is a work depicting looking through many layers of thoughts such as built mythology, cognitive bias, or standpoint of any issue. Also depicting looking from various perspectives through the mist of extreme dichotomy.
This work comprises two series of photographs, the first series is a set of photographs captured in small parts in front of the royal billboards made by the government which were digitally painted with different colors. Blue represents the thought of conservative, Red represents the thought of liberal which both look onto the billboard with their own perspectives.
The second series projects the back of royal billboards which haven’t been noticed much by many people. This photo series was made by the Anaglyph 3D technique which, if looking through 3D glasses of left-red and right-blue (or cyan: midway between blue and green), the subject would be floating from the background. This series depicts looking at something with many perspectives and compares using radically different thoughts to consider some particular story. Similarly looking through 3D glasses to the back of royal billboards, those floating images might be from illusions created by our bias or the hidden discovered truth; depending on how we would interpret them and what the standpoint we would be on that story.
