Artist's Statement

I am currently executing a new project entitled "Accident Realm". The initial idea of the project is received from driving within the United States while I was performing my eight-years long project TRANSITION.

On the highway, there are many animals ran into the traffic lanes accidentally and tragically died under the wheels. Those road sections especially with no highway parapets obviously higher the risk of their death. Base on the fact of the artificial development overlapped the nature environment that caused the creatures suffer immediately a threat on living, I’d like to execute the Accident Realm project to discuss how the civilization progression and manpower involvement have endangered our world.
