Section 2: Objectives
“Why are you doing it?”
I am highly interested in foreign things, things I’ve never experienced or seen before. Looking at a new culture from fresh eyes could provoke the idea of exotic, and it sometimes provides an entirely new perspective of viewing a culture that significantly differs from the original. I am focusing on the imageries stemmed from my personal experience of looking at things that I’ve never seen before, or things that doesn’t event exist but in my dreams or fantasy such as plant species that are non existent, imaginary creature, metaphoric elements, and sceneries.
People sometimes dream of escaping the reality when times are tough, especially now due to COVID-19 when it’s not possible to travel anywhere. For this project I’m planning to focus on building my own space and world.
Section 3: Methodology
“How are you going to do it?”
I’m planning to further explore the concept of utopia by developing the oil painting called “Paradise” that I did last semester (attached below) into 3D form such as a tunnel book with multiple layers (1st project) and installation (2nd project).
My target audience is people who feel tired of staying at home all time and spending the same time everyday – people who needs a relaxation and a break. Not restricted to age or gender.
The first project will take about 3 weeks and 2nd will take another 3 weeks to complete.
