What would you say if I asked the question to you?
It is actually one of your earlier works that I am always drawn back to. I first spotted it when looking through your website for your Chongqing application and I always go back to it when I visit your web or want to show your work to someone else. With this particular piece of work it is the attention to detail and the emphasis on the small delicate object that I relate to. With my own work I often look for the unnoticed everyday object or surrounding and try to give it new importance through the view of the photography. The fact that you had used everyday objects and glorified them with such precision is what interests me in making work in general and in terms of installation work is something I am excited to develop, working with found and small everyday object, reworking and therefore re-evaluating them. And so this work from your 2007 installation is definitely the most relevant for me.
