No material on earth has been so highly valued for its usefulness, yet so maligned, as plastic. We have ambivalent, divergent, and irresolute feelings about plastics, and have never finally decided whether they are good or bad. The idea here is to conceive works of art as social representations of a socially constructed reality. To create images which challenge the perception of our physical and natural world. I’ve been examining closely the course of our human existence and what to expect of our future. Environment is unavoidably changing around us, species constantly evolving, what are the new challenges we must confront? Is extinction probable for us creatures in order to make way for superior breed of life? Synthetic Species Series puts forth the possibility of evolutionary existence for an inorganic object, plastic. Breathing in life to shape a process of metamorphosis from an immature form, plastic bag, to an adult form, unidentified species. These species inhabit the sea and only live once nothing else does.

世界上没有任何材料,因其一无是处而如此有价值,同时有害,这种材料正是塑料。对于塑料,我们的感觉或莫衷一是,或优柔寡断,从未确定它们的好坏。作品传达的理念是,将艺术作品作为对社会建构现实的再现,创造能挑战身体与自然世界感知的形象。我认真地审视了人类存在的方式,以及对我们未来的期待。身边的环境发生着无法避免的改变,物种不停地进化,我们必须面临的新挑战是什么?对于任何生物来说,都可能面临的灭亡,是否是为了更优越生命的进步?合成物种系列,提出了一个不起眼客体进化的可能性,那就是塑料。在生命里呼吸,构建变形的过程,从塑料袋这种不成熟的形态,进化到一种更成熟的且无法辨认的种类。这些物种栖居于海洋,不同于其他物种,它们只有一次生命。
