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:
I shot this beautiful lake in the middle of the mountains, located in Yunnan. In the Tibetan areas, the ancients believe that the God of Lake and the God of Water really exist. They worship nature and know that as humans, we are part of it, we all should respect and wish that the God of nature protect people in return.
I got so-called kind of spiritual transformation on this trip. Maybe because of the great and powerful scenery, maybe the cultural experience, maybe the belief of Tibetan and humanity of different culture. I started to destruct the way of thinking during the journey. I climbed a lot of mountains, walked a long and winding road so that I can reach the beauty of this view. The lake is amazing, the colour of water keeps changing and you may believe that the God of Lake was showing something magical to you, which made me forget about the existence of Time.
I hope my Artwork gives you a sense of peace, the concept of time flow, feelings of love, and hopes. Live your life to the fullest, create your life like an art piece.
