Concept Art
The artwork of Rose is a rose that belongs to the imagination of future technological sensations. Quantum leaps, mere changes in time will redefine past existence. The creation of the present will also reconfigure the definition of the future. Time is the ever-changing river of history, the whirlpool The path of the spiral forward covered with thorns, and when the ideal meets these thorns, the present point in time, you are in pain. But from a distance, your future is bright and beautiful. The thorns may be the current state of the epidemic, or international political tensions, or real difficulties in your life. However, when viewed from a distance, the difficulties are not as difficult as we think and the future of the world is more beautiful.

Quantum Tunnelling

Xin Min
2020
In the Macrocosm, people cannot pass through a wall. But in the quantum universe, when an electron is emitted toward this wall, he can dig a tunnel and shuttle past it in absolute time. But what after that? Can the various tools that mankind unearthed in order to grasp the truth that cannot be directly obtained by human beings can also objectively reflect the world outside the wall?

The global epidemic in 2020 made the whole world extremely cold and heavy Birds leave the branches, flowers wither, life has never become so fragile and difficult. The first snow in the winter of 2021 is falling, the earth, pines and cypresses, rivers and mountains are covered with silver, majestic decoration, which has injected some vitality into the loneliness and coldness of this land. To feel the warmth of the earth with sincerity, to wake up the soul of life with pure colors, to record the traces of time with a warm brush, and to truly feel the desire to depict spring are my creative pursuit.

Wear The Canyon Like a Blank Eye

This photograph belongs to an ongoing project exploring perception as well as the relationship between mind and matter.
I transformed mundane surroundings into abstract photographs in an attempt to evoke emotions and explore visuals that represent the mind, the consciousness.
Then I taped parts of a photo onto geometric shapes and placed them on the original photo to take another photograph. Geometric shapes reference the basic forms of physical reality, which is considered to be matter; and they allude to ideas like logic and mathematics, which are in opposition to ideas afforded by the mind like emotion and intuition.
By juxtaposing the shapes along with the abstract photo, She aims to explore how mind and matter intertwine and contrast with one another, as well as how we as human beings can poetically experience this dichotomy.

Wriinkled

Gregg LeFevre
Size: 76"x47"
Each three dimensional image is shot at a 45 degree angle which departs from the standard 90 degree full frontal shot, essentially changing the image's width and interpretation. Also by shooting photographs of existing advertising photographs that have been made three dimensional by the elements: wind, rain, sunshine etc there is a second change of state. Because the work features both real three dimensional wrinkles in the photograph itself and images of three dimensionality in the original advertising photo, it calls into question what is real and what is not.

Half Arc Watch

Xin Min

The fast-paced lifestyle makes people more sensitive to time. A fast-paced lifestyle can cause people to live in a stressful mental state. We redesigned the watches pointer and speed, it is to emphasize the true meaning of time and ease people's nerves. This is a way of representing the course of a day in terms of fuzzy time. In addition, the user can read and pick out 2 exact time points in one day, When the half-arc pointer rotates to the starting state, it means the end of the day. It means that things are developing halfway through the day When the half-arc pointer is turned end to start.
