The first time I came to Marin headlands, I thought the place was pretty peaceful. The mountains have different colors, the sea sometimes turns green, sometimes blue and there are places for tourists. There are many views if you explore deeper. As a foreigner, I came to explore the Marin with a tourist perspective. In my interaction with the scenery, I felt variations of feelings. With different views I experienced different feelings.
I’m a guy who loves a chaotic life, like crowed cities, shops and streets. To represent my love of chaos, I inserted 3d built shapes into the landscape photos I shot at the headlands. The arrangement of the shapes represents a feeling I experienced while I was interacting with the place. The color red represents the blood of living people as it circulates throughout their body. The reflective material shows that nature and people affect each other.
I feel like that the darkroom processing could be the key to open my art vision. I kept trying different techniques to approach my art thinking. This project include pinhole camera, liquid emulsion, digital negative contact printing, chemigrams, polaroid emulsion lift, cliche verre.
