I'm good at using the old objects as a blueprint, through the transformation of the material and shape of the objects , the combination of old and new elements ; thus giving it a new meaning and functions. Birthday album shows some of my family members, lovers, friends having disappeared in my life. Time passes, some of them walked out from my life, some of them are not friends anymore, some of them are missing from my contact list, some of them passed away. I use porcelain slab to make "ceramic photographs", from the images of the original photos. I carve silhouettes of people but not all on the "ceramic photographs"; while the original image is projected on it. The light behind the"ceramic photographs" passes through it and creates another projection on the wall. If audiences come closely, they will block both projections.
