Title: Island
Living in cities, I observes moments when people are immersing in specific states: sitting still, being absent-minded, or being extremely relaxed and forgetting themselves. These scenes bring me sense of both intimacy and alienation. Strangers fusing into urban environment are familiar for me who was brought up in cities, while my imagination upon their intentions is opened due to the alienation derived from my identity as a foreigner.

With the water-based pigments which are controllable and contingent, I balanced the attributes of different pigments to exhibit the conflict and integration of reality and imagination.
