SUMMARY

The street consists of many ordinary parts, although we seldom observe them in detail, there is a kind of “unfamiliar familiarity” in between, which was rooted in our conscious ages ago.

We know their existence, but our gaze seldom falls upon those repeating elements. By turning the ordinary parts of the street into miniature jewellery, the series intends to raise our awareness of those overlooked details, shortening the relationship between those ordinaries and the body, providing us with the imageability to consider their symbolic meaning.
