The artwork was developed from the film more than 10 years ago. We did a lot of procedures including handcraft and AI enhancement to make this work come true, from a low-resolution photo taken 11 years ago, and make it shine on Fine Art Cotton Artist Textured paper. It’s fun to try and error many times in this experimental process. It may not be not perfect, but the imperfection made it Art.
Story of the Artwork:
2009, I came across my first crossroad. I was tired of my routine job and decided to quit. I have received calling, there was an inner voice in my mind, told me to go on a long trip and think about my career path, and the direction of my life. I packed my backpack, bought a ticket for the train, went on the road. I remembered I just wanna escaped from all of the boring daily life, but dun know where should I go.
That was my first spiritual trip in my life. Every time when I think of the trip, I would think of a trip to my soul. It was a trip to explore my desire and spiritual needs.
