Convenient Island

 

Concept

My creation process begins with recreation of real-life scenery in miniature.
With a measuring tape in hand, measurement of actual objects such as convenience stores, insides of a train, major roads, and newly built apartments is taken. The measured object is then shrunk proportionately to create a diorama that truly reflects the actual object. and After the diorama is completed, it is photographed (on 4 x 5 inch film).
The diorama exits only temporarily and is destroyed after being photographed. The pictured image then becomes only a shadow of actual existence and begins to form an added sense of remoteness.
The photograph of a miniature can only be incomplete. Thus, the miniature guides the viewers to look at “the real thing,” and through this process, “the real thing” becomes truly real.
