My photos focus on absurdist photography, mainly by sculpting daily and ordinary objects and taking pictures for them. As daily objects take on a different form than they used to, they often cause the audience to doubt their own experiences, to the effect of surprise and absurdity. In most of the photos, I will carry out some anthropomorphic processing. Although the objects I shoot are just daily objects, not people, I still hope that the audience can have more sense of substitution and find emotional interaction in my photos.

This project was inspired by many artists working in the still life tradition, by photographers who work with notions of the absurd and nonsense in the everyday. Through acknowledging these artists' influence here, these works in progress, I can now move towards developing my own visual language and practice as part of my MA studies.
