The wooden light box - Concept

The intention of the series woks “The wooden light box” is to express our discussing processes in a steric form. When we read a book or when we watch a photograph, we unconsciously connect the distinctive times expressed there, into the layers of time concept, and arrive at a certain conclusion in our own mind. In these works, I show the layers of time concept in the steric form objects. Whenever we look at the photographs shown on the surface of the box, we are led into another layer world. I got this idea from the shape the dark box of camera. The hole of camera shows the micro-world, however, there spreads the macro-world in it. I try to express that we can find out something new in this world even from a small object.
